Meetings & Events

Meetings and events are announced via our Facebook group.  Any last minute changes are also announced via Facebook and membership list emails.

Meetings consist of short announcements and a lecture or presentation by a noted speaker in the genealogy field.  The current meeting (next meeting) is featured on our website, with additional information on the Meetings & Events page. 

All meetings are held at the Mid-Island Y-JCC, 45 Manetto Hill Road, Plainview, NY 11803, unless otherwise noted.

Meetings start at 2pm, but come early to get time & help from a Mishpocha Maven! 
Mishpocha Mavens can help you figure out where to start, point you in new directions, or help you break through a brick wall. 

In case of inclement weather, etc., call the Mid-Island Y-JCC, 516-822-3535, to confirm

As always, JGSLI Membership Forms, our Information File, our recent library acquisitions, and other helpful resources will be on hand. There is no charge for admission. Coffee and cookies are served.

Lecture Series Schedule

June 27, 2010 – Getting the Most Out of JewishGen – Phyllis Kramer
Most of us are registered, but not everyone can navigate the more complex databases and facilities. For instance: can you find the distance between two shtetls? And then map it? Can you figure out who uploaded the FTJP tree? This powerpoint presentation will take you through the basics and into the corners of JewishGen. Come with your questions and we’ll explore together.

July 11-16, 2010 – 2010 Annual Summer Conference – Los Angeles, California
At the J.W. Marriott at L.A. Live – an exciting new museum, dining and entertainment complex in downtown Los Angeles.

If there is a program you would like to recommend or present contact our Programing VP.
