save the dates!

All presentations noted are at 1:00 pm CDT except for the March 24th one which is at noon.


As we look ahead to 2024, we have fleshed out much of our schedule.


On May 19th, Jennifer Mendelsohn will present the DNA Reunion Project, exploring how DNA research can reconnect descendants of survivors to family roots lost in the Shoah. 


If you've ever wondered how forensic genealogy is used to solve crimes, on June 23rd, Jarrett Ross, a popular blogger on YouTube, who has worked as a forensic genealogist, will take us behind the scenes. 


Maybe you aren't ready for a roots trip because you are still trying to find your ancestral town. Then save September 15th for Risa Daitzman Heywood, one of our favorite speakers, as she helps us validate where family came from and under what name.


It's an exciting line-up and we have a few other sessions that are still being firmed up. We also anticipate member-only working sessions on July 28th and December 15th and of course a Hanukkah party to follow our December 15th annual meeting.  Stay tuned!  

You may have noticed that we are taking a break in our programming in August for the IAJGS conference in Philadelphia. If you've never been to a conference, come see what it is all about. The sessions are valuable and a good way to identify future speakers for MNJGS, but the fun begins in the informal gatherings over dinner with old friends and new. We'll be sure to pull a group together and include you if you decide to come.

During the period of the pandemic many of our traditional gatherings  moved to webinars and many learned the benefits of online access. This may enable us to explore offerings of other organizations as our community has widened beyond our geographic area. Check below for upcoming events from other genealogical organizations.
