Jewish Genealogy Society to meet this Thursday

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island will meet on special day this month, Thursday, May 24, from 7 – 9 p.m. at the Mid-Island Y-JCC in Plainview.

This month’s program will be “Sex, Lies and Genealogical Tape” presented by Ron Arons. For 20 years, Ron has explored the life of the great-grandfather he calls “a criminal, a chameleon, and a comedian.” He will share his latest finds about this serial bigamist who served time in Sing Sing, double dipped on Social Security, and repeatedly lied on documents. Ron will also describe the wide range of records he used in his research and how he dealt with large discrepancies between them.

He is the author of “The Jews of Sing Sing,” “Mind Maps for Genealogy,” and “WANTED!: U.S. Criminal Records Sources & Research Methodology.”
