Michigan: 'Annie's Ghost' author, Nov. 15

"Annie's Ghost: A Journey into a Family Secret" author Steve Luxenberg speaks on Sunday, November 15, hosted by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Michigan.

The event takes place from 1-3pm, at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills.

Steve is a Detroit native and the book is based in the area, making it most appropriate.

A 30-year journalist, Steve will provide a detailed look at the genealogical and investigative reporting techniques he used to unearth the story behind a family secret, and answer questions about how to dig into your family history.

As a genealogist and journalist, I loved the book as it works its way through the techniques as both to find the answers to his family's secret. If you haven't read it yet, do so before the meeting, so you can ask him questions.

He'll also sign books (bring your own copy or purchase one at the meeting).

Admission: JGSMichigan members, free; others, $5. Reservations are recommended.
