Family History Today: Researching your Historical LGBTQ+ Relatives
Presented by the Center for Jewish History in honor of Pride Month 2021


Monday, June 28, 2 PM Eastern Time 

 

You may have heard family rumors about the “bachelor uncle” or the aunt and her “roommate.” Perhaps, you identify as LGBTQ+ and want to know if there were others like you in your family tree. Professional genealogist Janice Sellers will show you how to pursue this avenue of family history research. In addition, she will discuss ethical concerns you should consider, and why an understanding of gay history is critical to finding and understanding information about your LGBTQ+ forebears.

 

Tickets: Pay what you wish; register here to receive a link to the Zoom program.

 

This program is sponsored by the Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute at the Center for Jewish History. It is funded, in part, by a Humanities New York CARES Grant, with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the federal CARES Act, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

I am thrilled to see this.  When I came out in the early 70s I was wondering how to find others like me in my family. Now that I am in my own 70s decade, I am trying to make myself document my own history so that those who come after me will know more.  Many thanks for the CJH.
