The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society  (NYG+B) is hosting a webinar open to the public with Rhoda Miller, Ed.CG speaking about Collaboration-Baron De Hirsh Society and State Institute- Farmingdale.

 

The surprising find of a set of scholarship applications to the State Institute of Applied Agriculture, now Farmingdale State College, led to a treasure trove of genealogical information. Further research led to collections of information that further enhanced the information from the applications. These resources will be presented which can be applied to other similar research.

 

Rhoda miller, Ed.D., CG has been a Certified Genealogist since 1998 specializing in Jewish research and Holocaust studies. Rhoda is a Past President of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island (JGSLI) and continues as a board member. With JGSLI, she led the award-winning project of publishing the Images of America book, Jewish Community of Long Island. Recently, DNA has been added to her repertoire of research strategies.

 

The meeting is open to the public free of charge, although voluntary contributions are encouraged.
