Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois (JGSI) Sunday March 25 meeting at Temple Beth Israel (3601 W. Dempster Street in Skokie). Scheduled program begins at 2:00:
Marty Fischer will present a genealogical research case study: "The Most Famous Man in America You Never Heard Of".Marty will discuss his research on a relative whose name regularly appeared in newspapers all over the United States. Today, that person is unknown to the general public, but through his research hopes to breathe life into his relative's memory.
The Temple will open at 12:30 and JGSI members will be available to help answer genealogical questions, help with internet searches or for those interested in using the library resources. JGSI has recently added many wonderful new books and maps to the library.
