Please join us on Sunday, September 20, 2015, at 1:30 p.m., at the Hadassah meeting room, 3723 Old Court Rd (Dumbarton Offices entrance), Pikesville, for a Show-and-Tell program, ďItís Your Turn!Ē
Throughout the past year, weíve featured entertaining and informative presentations by speakers, but now itís time for our group members to take a turn. Please join us at the meeting and bring something to share!
All of our members are invited to bring something related to their own family history or research to share with the group. Perhaps youíve inherited your grandmotherís candlesticks or Seder plate. Maybe your grandfatherís tallis was passed down to you. Or possibly you have a portrait of an ancestor or a snapshot taken long ago at a family gathering. You may have found documents relating to your family's past in Europe centuries ago. Even if you donít possess any keepsakes from your ancestors, you may be able to show us a printout of their Ellis Island passenger manifest or a picture of the shtetl in which they lived.
Please bring your item to show to the group (of course, donít bring anything thatís extremely valuable or fragile), and tell us a little bit about the person it belonged to or how you received or discovered it.
Please bring just one item and limit your talk to just one minute!
The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location, and program of future meetings.

JGS Maryland has been reconstituted!
JGSMD had its initial meeting on Sunday August 18, 2013 to see if there was interest in the group's reconstituting. The turnout was overwhelming, with 31 people attending with only a few days' notice. Look forward to new programming over the next year!
