with Genealogists from the Center for Jewish History, NYC
Looking for a meaningful project to occupy your time and your mind while you are staying home? You can find a wealth of information about the lives of your ancestors and the places in which they lived from your own computer. In an interactive online presentation, J. D. Arden, Center for Jewish History's genealogy librarian, along with his colleagues, will show you tips and resources for getting started with your online family history research and answer your questions.  He will be joined by two colleagues who will offer us tips on the care and preservation of documents and photos at home.

He has a Master's degree in Library and Information Science from Pratt Institute and a Bachelor's in the European Arts and Cultural Studies Program from Brandeis University.
