The Genealogical Society of Bergen County (GSBC) holds monthly meetings at the Ridgewood Public Library at 125 No. Meetings are free and the public is always welcome. For more information, visit their website at www.njgsbc.org.

For this upcoming meeting, attendees are invited to bring something related to their own family history or research to share with the group.

Perhaps you've inherited your grandmother's candlesticks. Or possibly, you have a portrait of an ancestor or a snapshot taken long ago at a family gathering. You may have found documents relating to your family's past in Europe centuries ago. Even if you don't possess any keepsakes from your ancestors, you may be able to show us a printout of their Ellis Island passenger manifest or a picture of the village in which they lived.

Please bring the item to show to the group (of course, don't bring anything that's extremely valuable or fragile), and tell us a little bit about the person to whom it belonged, or how you received or discovered it. Please bring just one item and limit your talk to one minute!
