JGSGB Connect
There is a new JGSGB initiative launching this Fall! JGSGB Connect is a Zoom drop-in group to be scheduled for one hour one evening a month. The goals are for JGSGB members to help each other with genealogy questions, and to foster connections among members. Members can share strategies, ask questions, and learn from each other in an informal setting. Look for announcements of the meeting dates on our website, FaceBook group, and future emails.
