Life Lessons from the Dead

Speaker:  Alec Ferretti

Alec Ferretti has spent over a decade researching his Jewish family history, which spans all of Eastern Europe. He will talk about the life lessons, research skills, and new friends he's picked up along his way, and the strategies he’s learned, to discover genealogical wonders where few records exist.

Alec is a Dual Masters Student at New York and Long Island Universities, pursuing degrees in both Archival Studies and Library Science. He also works as a genealogist with the Wells Fargo Family & Business History Center, specializing in Italian and Jewish research. He is the president of the New York Genealogy & Technology Group and recently joined the board of Reclaim the Records, a nonprofit that seeks to restore public access to genealogical documents.

This program is free and open to the public, but preregistration is required.

We will be using the Zoom meeting platform.

When: May 17, 2020 01:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
