JGSPBCI SPEAKERS BUREAU

Chairperson Cindy Potter Taylor

Is your organization, school, religious group, or social club planning to have a Guest Speaker included in the program for a meeting, seminar, workshop or conference?

Keep in mind GENEALOGY is the #1 hobby in the world!

TV spots have been highlighting family search and the word continues to spread: Genealogy research “will grow your family tree – leaf by leaf – branch by branch”!

Listed below are JGSPBCI members, all experienced local genealogy lecturers, their latest venues, and popular topics which they have presented at their last several engagements. The speakers present their lectures in a Power Point slide show, and have lectured innumerable times "in-house" at JGSPBCI meetings and functions. Although lectures are geared toward Jewish genealogical research, they are also available for presentation in genealogical topics appealing and instructive to secular audiences.

Contact Cindy Taylor at president@jgspalmbeachcounty.org for information regarding additional topics, audio/visual needs and availability of handouts. A $125.00 honorarium fee is requested, made payable to JGSPBCI. As a non-profit organization, the fee supports our Judaic and Genealogical Library Collection.

Please: do not contact speakers personally before scheduling, as contract details are maintained by the Chairperson. Thank you.
