JGSLI Virtual meeting on Wednesday November 11 at 7:00 PM Eastern #announcements #events
Hello all! The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island is delighted to invite you to our bonus monthly meeting featuring a book and author talk with our guest speaker, Meryl Ain, about her book The Takeaway Men.
JGSLI is extending the invitation to the broader genealogy community. We ask that you register in advance (see below). Please share with your friends!
Wednesday, November 11th, 7:00 PM, via Zoom
Speaker: Meryl Ain
Meryl Ain is a career educator and published writer, whose articles have appeared in the Huffington Post, Jewish Week, the New York Times, Newsday and other publications. In 2014, she co-authored the award-winning book, The Living Memories Project: Legacies That Last. Her new book, The Takeaway Men, is the result of her life-long quest to learn more about the Holocaust and its aftermath. A novel based on historical research, The Takeaway Men raises many issues familiar to genealogists – the challenges of immigration, the burden of family secrets, the impact of the Holocaust on survivors’ children, and more. Meryl will discuss these aspects of her book as well as the research she did to better understand the experiences of survivors and their families.
There are two ways to join our meeting:
