Several selected members of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois will share family history discoveries and research tips in a free, live webinar at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 27, as part of the group's annual meeting.

The virtual "Kvell and Tell" session will be preceded by a brief annual report from JGSI President Debbie Kroopkin.

 

The informative "Kvell and Tell" talk topics relate to Jewish genealogy or family history research methods, anecdotes or discoveries.
