German Genealogy Group to meet Thursday


The German Genealogy Group will meet Thursday, Nov. 6, at the Hicksville V.F.W.

Orientation will be at 7 p.m. and the program will begin at 7:30 p.m. The topic will be “Finding the Only Child’s Niece : Truth and Fiction in Genealogical Sources.”

Sometimes when researching family history, it becomes evident what we think we know to be true is, in fact, not true. What resources and research techniques can be used to prove or disprove “facts?” How do we reconcile what we find with what we have been told?

Professional genealogist, Debra Braverman, will present a variety of case studies to illustrate the process of evaluating and reconciling family stories and research findings. Ms. Braverman is a forensic genealogist, specializing in research for probate and intestacy, and in 19th and 20th century NYC research. She regularly testifies as an expert witness in Surrogate’s Court hearings.

The V.F.W. is located at 320 S. Broadway. For more information, go to the club web site at:
