mess, and we have rescheduled his talk to:
Sunday, January 29th at 2:00 PM
Soref JCC, 6501 West Sunrise Blvd.
at 65 Avenue between University Drive and the Florida Turnpike
There is plenty of free parking on the 16-acre campus. We are thrilled that
we have been able to reschedule this much anticipated event.
Our speaker Ron Arons is a seasoned genealogist who has given presentations
locally and abroad, including past International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies annual conferences. He will speak about Bugsy Siegel and
Meyer Lansky - the Men Behind the famous Flamingo Hotel, and their amazing lives.
The talk will not only provide a terrific story, but also focus on how and
where one can find non-traditional documents. Of special local interest, Meyer
Lansky, born Maier Suchowljansky, a Jew >from Grodno, once lived in Miami Beach
and later helped put Las Vegas on the map.
We just wanted to let everyone who lives in Florida or is planning to visit
