Event Details

Sex, Lies, and Genealogical Tape

This presentation has several goals: 1) to show the novice genealogist the wide range of records that can be found regarding any individual, 2) how to assemble these documents/pieces into a logical puzzle which, in certain cases, can truly bring an ancestor back to life, and 3) how to deal with wide discrepancies in data. Focusing on one individual is a very different approach to genealogy. In doing so, you get to know your relative in a very intimate manner. In my case, by understanding the life of my great-grandfather's (criminal, chameleon, and comedian), I learned the meaning of various events that occurred in my childhood. (My great-grandfather died years before I was born.) I jokingly and very seriously call this "extended psychotherapy" - very powerful stuff.  The talk will showcase many new materials never shown to audiences in the past. 


Ron has presented numerous times at RootsTech, SCGS Jamboree, the APG Professional Management Conference, IAJGS (14X), WhoDoYouThinkYouAre? LIVE! (England), and LegacyFamilyTree webinars. He has published three books including The Jews of Sing Sing and Mind Maps for Genealogy. Ron studied engineering at Princeton University and earned an MBA from the University of Chicago.
