The next meeting of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island will be held
on Thursday, May 24.
Time: 7:00 PM
Place Mid-Island Y JCC 45 Manetto Hill Road Plainview, NY www.miyjcc.org
Guest Speaker: Ron Arons
Topic: "Sex, Lies and Genealogical Tape"
For 20 years Ron Arons has explored the colorful life of the great-grandfather
he calls "a criminal, a chameleon and a comedian." He will share his latest
finds about this serial bigamist who served time in Sing Sing, double dipped
on Social Security, and repeatedly lied on documents. Ron will describe the
wide range of records in his research. Ron's unusual approach to genealogical
research - focusing on one individual - brought his great-grandfather to life
and shed light on events that happened years after his death.
Ron Arons is an engineer and former marketing professional who now works full
time as a genealogist. He has had many presentations across the United states
and abroad. He is also the author of "The Jews of Sing Sing," "Mind Maps for
Genealogy," and "Wanted: U.S. Criminal Records Sources and Research Methodology."
Admission is free and all are welcome. Our "Mavens" will be available at 6:30
to take your genealogy questions.
