The Tucson Family History Center is sponsoring a Jewish Special Interest Group (SIG) beginning April 5, 2017. This is a wonderful opportunity for those who have Jewish roots to learn how to find their ancestors. The Jewish  SIG will meet at 3pm on the first Wednesday of each month in the Family History Center.

This SIG is not intended to replace the Southern Arizona Jewish Genealogy Society, but rather to enhance the learning experiences of attendees. The Jewish SIG will be a hands-on learning opportunity where an in-depth examination of one or two topics will be explored with time for attendees to put the lessons into action at the Center computers or their own laptops. There will also be opportunities to share information with each other at the meeting.

 Moreen Ferdi will be the SIG facilitator. There is no need to register in advance, just show up with a desire to learn and to share what you know with others.

Moreen is considering adding an evening meeting time for those that cannot meet during the weekday. If you have an interest in the evening time slot, please send an email to tucsongoalie@gmail.com.  You may direct any questions about the SIG to that email address as well.
