HAVE WE GOT A STORY TO TELL!
Our Toronto Jewish community is rich with groups and organizations.
And where there are groups and organizations, there is usually a need for programming.
I have the solution to that: our JGS Toronto Speakers Bureau. We all
have a genealogy story to tell. The JGS Toronto Speakers Bureau
provides the opportunity for our Society to reach out into the larger
Jewish community to tell our stories or provide an introduction to
basic genealogy and bring awareness to our work. It seems that
these days especially, everyone seems to have interest in learning
about their family history.
These are suggestions of groups we could target:
Schools • Women’s Groups • Men’s Groups • Seniors’ Clubs
Synagogues • Lunch & Learn Groups • Retirement Residences
Our Speakers Bureau provides support for members who have not
given a presentation before, but would like to share the joys of
genealogy with others. We have an Introduction to Genealogy
PowerPoint program, which can be used as a template for your
presentation. Alternatively, some groups may like to hear about how to do genealogical research through your own stories and amazing
discoveries. I know that each one of us has at least one story that
could be turned into an enlightening, interesting and entertaining
We cordially invite you to become a speaker with the JGS Toronto
Speakers Bureau. Contact me at [email protected]
