Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois meeting

Expert Jewish genealogist and writer Ron Arons will deliver two informative presentations at the Sunday, Sept. 25, 2016, meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois, starting at 1 p.m. at Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook, Ill.
The titles of his talks at this special meeting will be “Putting the Flesh on the Bones” and “Evaluating Evidence: Asking a mini-Minnie Question.”
Ron Arons calls “Putting the Flesh on the Bones” his “bread and butter talk” that he has given for 15 years. Through two related examples he explains how one can piece together an ancestor’s life by collecting as much documentation about him or her as possible as well as looking at the environments where they lived.
With his other presentation, “Evaluating Evidence: Asking a mini-Minnie Question,” Arons explains that researching the lives of our ancestors is a big task, but to evaluate evidence, one needs to examine the bits and pieces of our research.
