The Jewish Genealogical Society of NY will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a gala members' brunch at 11.30am on December 25, at the 92nd Street Y, 1395 Lexington Avenue, in Manhattan.
Elite of Lawrence, NY is the caterer. This company is familiar to those who attended the 26th IAJGS conference in New York. How could we forget that delicious, elegant chocolate-themed dessert buffet?
Reservations are required, seating is limited, so reserve now ($18, members; $25, others).
The annual meeting will take place at 12.45pm, followed by Mike Karsen of Chicago who will present "Write Your Family History NOW." He will also preview the 2008 IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, set for August 17-22.
A professional genealogy speaker/instructor and researcher, Karsen is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the Genealogical Speakers Guild and the National Genealogical Society. He speaks on genealogy topics locally and nationally, teaches classes in genealogy, and is on the faculty of the Newberry Library and Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies. In addition to presenting at state, national and international conferences, he has authored the JewishGen website “Guide to Jewish Genealogy in Chicagoland,” numerous articles on genealogy, and is president of the JGS of Illinois.
