UPCOMING PROGRAMS
 
The Jewish Genealogical Society of Oregon
Invites you, your family and friends to its upcoming Program.
June 23, 2019 @ 10:30 AM
TOPIC:  Research session

June’s JGSO meeting will be a research session providing one-on-one support.  Set aside a few hours each month to work on your family tree.   Redefine your research goals.  Get help with the endless supply of genealogical websites.

 
Bring your research materials and your personal laptops or tablets.  Some computers with internet access will be available for those without.  While you work with our Mavens/Experts, take advantage of some of the resources that are available within the library.*
 
The meeting will be held on Sunday, June 23, 2019 @ 10:30 AM at the Hillsdale Public Library located at 1525 SW Sunset Boulevard Portland, OR 97239.  Public parking is available and the library is easily accessible via Tri-Met bus.  See this TriMet map for more details. 
 
All those interested in exploring their Jewish ancestry/family history are welcome.  Even if you don’t have specific questions come and exchange knowledge and ideas with others who have similar interests.  Help others and be prepared to learn something new as you listen to other people’s questions and the processes used in finding their answers.
 
Cost:  This program will be free to all participants.
 
If you want a head start on your issue, please write us at jgsoregon@gmail.com in advance with your research question.
 
The program begins at 10:30AM.
Doors open at 10:00 PM.
