All of our regular meetings are held at the South County Civic Center on the second Wednesday of the month unless otherwise noted. Prior to the formal meeting at 1:00 pm, a "Brick Wall" session is held at 12:30 pm. Special Interest Groups (SIGs) meet as indicated here. In those months, the SIG meeting(s) begin at 11:30 am.
Our regular monthly meetings are held for the benefit of our members. Guests are welcome for a fee of $5.00, which will be credited towards your membership if you choose to join. Members of other Jewish Genealogical Societies may attend one meeting at no cost, but only if you have a current membership card from your home organization.
Handouts from some of our previous meetings can be found here.

Ron will use the Genealogical Proof Standard to show how identities can be merged and separated. In this example, five individuals, all with the same name, all born in the same general timeframe, and all living in the same place where one of the individuals lived or claimed to live, all found trouble, either in business or with women. Is this possible? If so, how? It defies probability and statistics. A fun set of stories about multiple unrelated men who just happened to share the same name and fate (trouble). A great demonstration of the Genealogical Proof Standard in action.
