Florida: "Best bet internet sites," March 12

Ron Arons will speak in Los Angeles on March 9, and then he's off to Florida, where the author, lecturer and researcher will speak at the Jewish Genealogical Society of Palm Beach County in Delray Beach on Wednesday, March 12.

He will present "Best Bet Internet Websites," at 1pm.

Arons will explore the many "best bet" websites that allow researchers to find materials online, including historical documents, newspapers and articles, living people, maps and photos, foreign language translators and aids and more. He will provide numerous examples of how the Internet has worked for him.

A seasoned genealogist who has traced his roots to England, Poland, Romania, Ukraine Belarus and Lithuania, Arons holds degrees from Princeton University and the University of Chicago. His current research focuses on both famous and lesser-known Jewish criminals and received the 2005 Hackman Research Residency Award.
