Topic: How to Locate Individuals through Genealogy



Fred started his attorney service company, B&R Services for Professionals in 1968. In 1988 he obtained his Private Detective license.

 In 1998 he became interested in his family history. He studied genealogy and was able to locate his ancestors dating back to 1810.

To date he has identified 1200 family members. With the knowledge he obtained, in 2005 he decided to volunteer for the IRC Holocaust

Tracing Service, to reconnect Jewish, Polish and Ukrainian Holocaust survivors. In 2006 he was awarded the local and national "Volunteer of the Year" Award from the IRC.

Fred will teach us some techniques he uses to locate individuals through genealogy. This information will enable researchers to not only locate family,

uncover distant relatives, assist in searching for heirs, as well as locating missing relatives.

Mentors will also be available from 1:00 PM until the start of the meeting to help with your research efforts.
