The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island will meet on Sunday at the Mid Island JCC-Y in Plainview. The Help Session will begin at 1:30 p.m. and the program will begin at 2 p.m.

This month’s program will be “45 Years as a Jewish Genealogist : A Cranky Critique” presented by Arthur Kurzweil. Based on his four and a half decades in the field, Arthur Kurzweil, author of “From Generation to Generation,” will explore the underbelly of the world of Jewish genealogy — our mistakes, our misbehavior, our sins of omission and our sins of commission — and he will offer some strong suggestions for the future.
