JGSGB Family History Fair in Elstree

From the Jewish Genealogy Society of Great Britain (www.jgsgb.org.uk):

The JGSGB (Jewish Genealogy Society of Great Britain) is organising a Family History Fair, to be hosted at the De Vere Village Urban Resort hotel in Elstree on 7th July 2013. The main room, the hotel’s Inspiration Suite, will provide space for exhibitors and vendors of all things genealogical to aid the researching, recording, storage and sharing of your family’s history. Two additional rooms will be dedicated to expert speakers on Jewish genealogy and history; and there will be ‘Ask the Expert’ sessions where visitors can exchange their problems for solutions. A highlight will be the JGSGB’s Translation Desk where visitors can bring Hebrew, Arabic, Ladino and Cyrillic documents – not forgetting headstone inscriptions – for immediate translation.

You don’t have to be Jewish to come to the Fait or, indeed, take advantage of the JGSGB. Both are aimed not only at keen and committed Jewish genealogists but those who know that they have Jewish ancestry or merely think they might but have not yet discovered how to uncover their forebears.

So far, this first JGSGB Family History Fair is being supported by Gold Sponsor MyHeritage and Bronze Sponsor Find My Past, both leading players in genealogical research ad display

You can keep an eye on Fair developments, highlights, sponsors, exhibitors and speakers in the Fair’s Blog at www.jamestaylor.info/wp/
