Call to Meeting – February 26

It’s almost time for our first meeting of the year for the Utah JGS.

As we’ve done for the past several years, our February schedule has been bumped up a week to take place the day before RootsTech, when we can take advantage of the speakers coming to town for the conference, and to get some extra attendance from the conference-goers.

This year we will have a returning favorite speaker, Daniel Horowitz, who will be telling us 10 Things You May Not Want to Know About MyHeritage.

MyHeritage is constantly adding new features to their website. Why do you not want to know about them? Because you will get addicted to all the amazing features available that will advance your family research. Come hear Daniel tell you all about: Pedigree Tree, Pedigree Map, Tree Consistency Checker, Charts, Calendar Events, Statistics, and many more.

Come join us on February 26th at 6:30pm in the main floor classrooms B & C at the Family History Library.

We will also have representatives at the IAJGS booth at RootsTech. If you’re interested in volunteering, just let us know by replying to this message.

See you there!

Call to Meeting – November 20

It’s almost time for the last UJGS meeting of 2018.

We will be meeting on November 20th at 6:30pm in a classroom on the main floor of the Family History Library. (Just head to the back wall and you will find us in one of the rooms.)

Our speaker will be Gordon L Remington and his topic is New York City Research.

See you there!

Call to Meeting – October 23

Hello friends. This is a reminder that UJGS is having a meeting tomorrow, October 23rd, at 6:30pm, in a classroom on the main floor of the Family History Library. (Just go to the rooms along the back wall and we’ll be in one of them.)

Our speaker couldn’t accommodate our change of schedule so we don’t have a topic. But a few of us went to the IAJGS conference in Poland a couple months ago and maybe you’d like to hear about that?

Otherwise, bring some genealogy research to do, especially your brick walls, and we’ll try to help you along.

See you there!

Call to Meeting – Delayed to October 23

A belated Shana Tova from UJGS!

Now that the high holidays are finally over, it’s time for another UJGS meeting.

Our meeting was supposed to be October 16th, but we’ve just been informed that FamilySearch is having a special event and the rooms at the FHL are unavailable.

So we are delaying our meeting one week and holding it on October 23rd. Sorry for any inconvenience but we hope you can still attend. It will be the usual time, 6:30pm, in one of the classrooms on the main floor.

We’re waiting for confirmation from our speaker and we’ll let you know when that is set up.

Call to Meeting – July 17

The next UJGS meeting will be July 17th at 6:30pm in classroom B on the main floor of the Family History Library (our usual place).

Our speaker this month is Marek Koblanski. We don’t have the title but he will be talking about Polish research.

This is our last meeting until October, so don’t miss it!

Call to Meeting – June 19

Our next UJGS meeting will be June 19th at 6:30pm in classroom B on the main floor at the Family History Library.

Our speaker will be Banai Lynn Feldstein and her presentation is “Three Adoptions and an Ethical Dilemma”. Come hear the stories about three adoptions in her immediate family.

See you there!

Call to Meeting – May 22

We had a little confusion this month over the date of the meeting and miscalculated that this past Tuesday was the second week when it was actually the third, so we’re having our meeting on the fourth Tuesday this month.

We will be meeting on May 22nd in classroom B on the main floor of the Family History Library.

Our speaker will be Brian Schellenberg and his topic is “Eretz Ashkenaz: A History of Germany and It’s Jewish Population”.

See you there.

Call to Meeting – April 17

Sorry for the extremely late notice, but life happens.

We have a UJGS meeting on Tuesday, April 17th at 6:30pm in classroom B on the main floor of the Family History Library (same place as the last two meetings).

April 25th is DNA Day, so it’s appropriate that out speaker, Nathan Machula, will be presenting “Genetic Genealogy 101”.

Come learn about using DNA for genealogy research, then stick around for questions and additional conversation about our own results.

See you there!

Call to Meeting – March 20

Our next meeting with be on March 20th at 6:30pm in Classroom B on the main floor of the Family History Library.

Our speaker will be Lindsay Levine, a research manager at AncestryProGenealogists and the topic will be Tips and Tricks for Immigration Research: Passenger Lists, Naturalization Records, and Identifying Towns of Origin in Europe.

Come join us for the presentation and, and always, feel free to bring your research questions with you. We will be happy to try to help with your family history research.
