What's in a Name? Trouble!
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Diecke Auditorium - 5701 Cypress Road, Plantation
In this special joint meeting with the Jewish Genealogical Society of Broward County, professional genealogist Ron Arons will use an important genealogical technique to show how identities can be merged and separated. Five individuals, all with the same name, all born in the same general timeframe, and all living in the same place where one of the individuals lived or claimed to live, all found trouble, either in business or with women. Is this possible? If so, how? It defies probability and statistics. A fun set of stories about multiple unrelated men who just happened to share the same name and fate (trouble). A great demonstration of the Genealogical Proof Standard in action.
While we continue to develop new and exciting areas to explore we currently offer the following:
- Computer lab - computers available for research and assistance prior to the meeting, beginning at 12 noon
- A friendly and enthusiastic group who are excited to build our society and assist you in researching your family history
Explore our menu on the left of the web page to see all of the different things GSBC brings to both its members and all who may come to explore. We hope to continue to develop new and interesting areas for you to search for your family history.
