What’s in a Name? Trouble!

November 16, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EST

at Congregation Beth El Atereth Israel (Watch Party*)


Speaker: Ron Arons

Is it possible that many different individuals having the same uncommon first and last name, born in the same 12-year timeframe, and living in the same place, all found trouble?  Yes, it’s true and I prove that it’s so. Along the way, I’ll also be talking about mind maps; tools that can significantly help in research analysis and reporting.

Ron Arons has given 250+ presentations internationally. He has authored three books, The Jews of Sing Sing; Wanted! U.S. Criminal Records, and most recently, Mind Maps for Genealogy. In 2006 he appeared on the PBS special The Jewish Americans. In 2008 he won a Hackman Research Grand from the NY State Archives to continue his research on historical Jewish criminals in New York. Ron earned a B.S. in Engineering from Princeton University and an MBA from the University of Chicago.



Admission is free for members, $5 for non-members. Refreshments will be served.
