We’ll see you there.

Call To Meeting – February 24

It’s almost time for Utah JGS’s first meeting of the year. We will be meeting on Monday, February 24th at 6:30 pm in the main floor classrooms at the Family History Library.

Our speaker is Daniel Horowitz, the genealogy expert at MyHeritage, and he’ll be telling us about Israeli and European Records Available on MyHeritage.

This meeting takes place the same week as RootsTech. Whether you are planning to attend or not, in past years, the Expo Hall has been free to visit, and probably will be again. You can meet with the vendors and learn about the products and technologies they offer to assist with your genealogy research. We recommend a visit one day.

And because this is our first meeting of the year, it’s time to pay your dues: $10 per person or $15 per couple. You can pay in person (cash, check, or credit card) or by credit card online at Square.

See you there!

Call to Meeting Update – November 18

This is your reminder message of our upcoming UJGS meeting, November 18th, 6:30pm at the FHL in our usual room.

This is our election meeting and a good time to either volunteer yourself for a position or volunteer your ideas for what you want our society to do in the future.

And we have a speaker scheduled. (The previous message said we didn’t.) Lindsay Levine will be speaking about research in the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

See you there.

Call to Meeting – November 18

It’s November so that means it’s time for the last meeting of the year for Utah JGS.

We’ll meet on November 18th and, as usual, at 6:30pm at the Family History Library in a main floor classroom.

If you want to have a say in the future of our society, or volunteer for a position, this is your chance because it’s our election meeting.

We don’t have a speaker scheduled so we’ll just be talking about genealogy and our society. If you have ideas to improve our society or get more people involved, bring them. If you have questions about your own genealogy, we’re always happy to try to help.

See you there.

Call to Meeting – September 16

It’s almost time for our last meeting of the year — the Hebrew year, that is.

Our next meeting is in two weeks, on September 16th, at 6:30pm in a main floor classroom of the Family History Library.

Come hear Kathy Kirkpatrick teach us about Jewish Military Burials in Europe and the US.

We will not have a meeting in October due to the High Holidays, so come and get your fix for Jewish genealogy this month. (We will have a meeting in November.)

As always, you are welcome to bring your own genealogy problem if you need assistance with your research. We’re happy to help.

See you there.

Call to Meeting – August 19

It’s time for another JGS meeting. We are still meeting on the third Monday of the month, August 19th, in a main floor classroom of the Family History Library at 6:30pm.

This month, we will hear from Banai Feldstein about Lesser Known Online Resources, a presentation she gave at the IAJGS conference last month in Cleveland.

Come learn about many resources, most free, and how to find more to help with your own research.

As always, if you need any help — translations or brick walls — bring them along and we’ll do our best to move you along in your research.

See you there.

Call to Meeting – Monday, July 15

This is your monthly reminder that it’s time for a Utah JGS meeting. Again, we will be meeting on the third Monday, July 15th, 6:30pm, at the Family History Library in a classroom on the main floor.

We have two possible presentations, depending on if one will be ready in time for the meeting. Both presentations are about available genealogy resources, each from different sources. We’ll try to send out a reminder when we know which one we’re going with.

As always, if you have any research problems you want help with, bring them with you and we’ll try to help.

See you next week.
