Ridgewood Public Library Auditorium
We invite you to bring something related to your family history or research and share with the group at our July meeting.
Perhaps you’ve inherited your grandmother’s candlesticks. Or maybe you have a portrait of an ancestor or a snapshot taken long ago at a family gathering. You may have found documents relating to your family’s past in Europe centuries ago. Even if you don’t possess any keepsakes from your ancestors, you may be able to show us a printout of their Ellis Island passenger manifest or a picture of the village in which they lived. Please bring your item to show to the group (of course, don’t bring anything that’s extremely valuable or fragile), and tell us a little bit about the person it belonged to or how you received or discovered it.
Please bring just one item and limit your talk to one minute! Free and open to all.
