August 20: Adventures in Genealogy with Jennifer Mendelsohn #events
Adventures in Genealogy with Jennifer Mendelsohn - Live on Zoom
Presented by the Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute at the Center for Jewish History
When: August 20, 6 PM ET
Jennifer Mendelsohn is the founder of #resistancegenealogy, a social media movement that’s garnered international attention by using genealogical and historical records to fight disinformation and honor America’s immigrant past. In this session she’ll talk about her path to becoming an “accidental activist.” She’ll also detail how her genealogical adventures have helped reunite long lost family members, debunked decades-old family fairy tales (Did you know no names were changed at Ellis Island?) and led to shocking, poignant and sometimes hilarious revelations.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
