GSBC General Meeting: The Stranger in My Genes

Presenter:  CNBC host Bill Griffeth

Join GSBC as we welcome CNBC host, Bill Griffeth, who will speak on his latest book The Stranger in My Genes.

In the summer of 2012, Griffeth, longtime genealogy buff, took a DNA test that had an unexpected outcome: “If the results were correct, it meant that the family I had spent years documenting was not my own.”

GSBC General Meeting: New York Research

Presenter: Barbara Ellman

So many of our immigrant ancestors began their American journey by living in New York City. Many families started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn. Their children may have moved further afield to Queens, Westchester, Long Island, and New Jersey.

In this talk Ellman will identify resources such as vital records, naturalization, probate, property, and newspapers. Many will be available online but we'll note which can only be found on-site at various archives and repositories.
