Introduction to Genealogy
By using his own family, Steven Gabai of the Genealogical Society of Bergen County will show and explain genealogy records, its research and what you can learn by researching your family history. This 90-minute slide show presentation tells the stories behind those records and research as well as the breakthroughs, frustrations, and brick walls that go along with it. Registration is required.
Steven Gabai started researching his family history over 20 years ago. He is a member of the Genealogical Society of Bergen County and has been a trustee on the board since 2015. With his two genealogy programs — Introduction to Genealogy and Internet Genealogy — his objective is to motivate others to research their family history and to offer assistance.
