Genealogy in the Round:Share Your Successes, Failures, Artifacts and Brick
Come and share a genealogical success, failure, brick wall, or

another-take this opportunity to share your genealogical story-success or
failure, ask questions about your brick walls, and more!
If you wish
to participate in the program, please contact Jan Meisels Allen at president@JGSCV.org. Each participant
will be given 5-10 minutes to share-depending on the number of presenters.
We have room for several more presenters---Whether you are a JGSCV member or
a potential member-we'd love
to hear your genealogical story.
Schmoozing corner, which starts 15 minutes before the meeting begins will be
facilitated by Werner Frank, JGSCV founding member and former board member.
This permits attendees to ask questions on brick walls and get directions on
how to do their research.

presented by JGSCV board member and publicity chairperson, Marion Werle on
Citing Your Sources--this is critical when doing your genealogical
research--listing where you obtained the information and how to do
