The Awful Truth About Mike And Fred or Solving A Family Mystery! with Shirley GinzburgShirley will share about 25 photos and documents that plot the zig-zag route to how she solved the mystery. One important point for everyone is that the proof documents are not solved in chronological order...which means frustrating dives in the wrong direction, often. The common tools/sources plus a couple obscure ones revealed a lot about the career of a popular bandleader.
Looking For My Great-grandfather, Joseph Schwartz and Finding 300 New Cousins with Lee Jaffe
Joseph Schwartz's life in the US is well-documented: yet nothing certain has been found about him beforehand. Lee will report on his ongoing work to uncover his great-grandfather's past, from searching traditional sources to pursuing leads from DNA testing, concluding with a progress report on efforts to launch an "ancestry project" in collaboration with potential cousins.
Lee Jaffe was introduced to family research in the 1980s when he was given two family trees: he has been expanding his family tree and his skills ever since, most recently exploring DNA testing. Lee was a librarian at UC Santa Cruz before retiring in 2014.
