October 10, 2017: The Suffragents Meet the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society

October 4, 2017

This is not likely to land me work as a pitch person, but when Josh Taylor, president of The New York Genealogical & Biographical Society came to class on October 4 with the society’s development officer, Jen Davis, she asked us to record the Facebook Live video promo (seen below) for the NYG&B Facebook page. So we did. It’s for the fall NYG&BS luncheon at Sarabeth’s Park Ave South on Tuesday, October 10, 2017. Check out the NYG&BS website in full for its astounding resources, a truly worthy organization to support. One of my very sophisticated students called Josh’s presentation on genealogical research “the best PowerPoint I’ve ever seen.” Useful to my graduate students in Global and Joint Program Studies at NYU, who are deep into the research for their deep-dives for the annual “A Lot about a Plot” series of NYMag.com’s Bedford + Bowery site.

Please join us for the Fall Benefit Luncheon, featuring Brooke Kroeger, on October 10. Go to newyorkfamilyhistory.org or call 212-755-8532 to purchase a ticket.
