Ron has traced his roots to Lithuania, Poland, Romania, England, Belarus, and the Ukraine. In 2006 Ron appeared on the PBS TV series The Jewish Americans. He has published three books including The Jews of Sing Sing and, most recently, Mind Maps for Genealogy. Ron earned a B.S. in Engineering from Princeton and an MBA from the Univ. of Chicago.

Show: Game Show Night Schpiel of Fortune

Game Show Night is almost a tradition at the IAJGS Conference. Specifically, ‘JewPardy’ (Jewish Genealogy Jeopardy) has been conducted at six previous IAJGS conferences to much acclaim. JewPardy is a takeoff of the standard game of ‘Jeopardy’ with certain twists to make more germane for Jewish genealogy audiences. Today, we will play “Schpiel of Fortune,” Ron’s spin-off of Wheel of Fortune. The result is an evening of education, jokes, mishaps, and LOTS of laughter. Not to be missed.
All meetings are for paid members only. Please see our website for additional membership information.www.jgasgp.org or contact [email protected]
