Sad to say, our Annual Quiz has had to be postponed until 21st January, 2017 due to lack of support.  Please put this date in your diary and make a point of booking a table well in advance so that the quiz can go ahead.

The next meeting of the Jewish Geneological Society of Great Britain will be held at SDRS on Sunday,20th November, commencing at 1.30 pm and ending at approximately 4.00 - 4.15 pm.  This will be a general workshop so please bring along your research and we can see how we can all help each other.  Anne Marcus will be in charge of the session.  Visitors and new members are always welcome.

Come and join us for an evening of fun and entertainment.   There will be a play, lots of singers and various acts that will make you laugh and all this followed by some light refreshments.  Entrance free - donation for the tea/coffee would be appreciated.  More information to follow.
