Topic:
The Bag on the Porch: Reconstructing a Family’s History

Description:
When a bag full of family documents and Judaica showed up without explanation on Martin F.’s porch, he turned to JGSLI for  help. He wondered to whom these items belonged, why they were  left outside his door, and how they could be returned to their
rightful owners. At this pre-Purim meeting, our speakers will tell us  the “whole Megillah” — describing how clues culled from the documents and personal effects allowed them to construct a family tree, locate the family’s living descendants, and discover how this unique parcel made its way to Martin.
