That’s right friends, UJGS is having a virtual meeting.
We hope everyone who can has been staying home, maybe getting some genealogy research done. One day, things will get back to more normal, and when that happens, we’ll all be wanting more records from the archives in Eastern Europe.
Join us on Monday, April 20, at 6:30pm for Janette Silverman of Ancestry ProGenealogists as she tells us about Researching in Eastern European Archives.
For this meeting, we will be using GoToWebinar. If you are not familiar with the program, we will be online at 6pm for you to log in and test it out before the meeting begins. You will need an Internet connection and a speaker or headphones, or you can call in with your phone for audio. Some instructions can be found here.
You must register online to attend. You will receive an email confirmation with instructions and a link to use to join the meeting, including a reminder email 1 hour before the presentation.
In light of the warnings about gatherings during the coronavirus outbreak, we’ve decided to postpone the UJGS meeting scheduled for this Monday, March 16th. We’ll be working with the speaker to reschedule his presentation for later this year.
Our next meeting will take place on Monday, 16 March, at 6:30pm in the main floor classroom of the Family History Library.
Daniel R. Jones, the Manager of The Slavic Research Specialist Team at FamilySearch will talk about some of the things that FamilySearch has that could help people researching in the area. Bring any additional questions for Daniel to answer to help with your research.
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.
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.
