Jewish Genealogy Group to meet this Sunday

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island will meet this Sunday, Dec. 18, from 2-4 p.m. at the Mid-Island Y-JCC in Plainview.

This month’s speaker will be Brooke Schreier Ganz, founder of the new not-for-profit activist group Reclaim the Records.

Reclaim the Records uses state Freedom of Information requests to obtain inaccessible genealogical and archival records and then freely return them to the public. Brooke will describe RTR’s recent victories – including the release of NYC marriage and voter registration records — and will teach you how to file your own Freedom of Information requests for records that you would like to see returned to the public domain.
