In his presentation, Dennis Aron, an experienced genealogist, will 
provide an overview of his genealogy efforts, including his first 
conversations with family elders, results of a letter to the baron of 
his grandmother's home town requesting information; his visits to 
Germany for research, memorials and award ceremonies; the over 1,200 
family members he has documented as murdered or lost in the Holocaust 
and his research into family members around the world.
Aron will also share tips on networking with other researchers and the 
use of original vital records as well as some specific research 

Dennis Aron has researched his family for over 30 years, more intensely 
now in retirement. He has spoken on his family history research to an 
Oakton Community College class on the History of the Holocaust, the 
Illiana Jewish Genealogy Society and the Jewish Genealogy Society of 
Illinois. He has written articles for Morasha, the quarterly publication 
of JGSI. He is a member of JGSI and GerSIG and volunteers at the Skokie 
Public Library to help community members with genealogy questions.
