Sex, Lies, and Genealogical Tape

With a title like that, what can a genealogist expect? Well, you can expect to receive intriguing ideas on how to approach your family history in a different way...

Here's what Ron Arons' June 24th class has to offer you: 
  • exposes you to the wide range of records that can be found regarding any individual
  • explains how you can assemble these documents/pieces into a logical puzzle which, in certain cases, can truly bring an ancestor back to life
  • helps you understand 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 ancestor in a very intimate manner. 

In Ron's case, by understanding the full life of his great-grandfather (he was a criminal, chameleon, and a comedian), he learned the meaning of various events that occurred in his own childhood. (My great-grandfather died years before I was born.) 

Ron jokingly and very seriously call this "extended psychotherapy" - very powerful stuff.  His lecture will showcase many new materials never shown to audiences in the past.
