Mapping Madness
Ron Arons will discuss a variety of websites that provide historical maps for genealogical research, and then review the basics of both Google and Microsoft's internet-based mapping facilities. Ron will also introduce other online mapping facilities and other up to the minute changes. In Ron's talk, Jewish criminals will make several cameo appearances along the way, whether they want to or not!
Ron Arons began researching his roots a dozen years ago and has spoken at six  IAJGS conferences. Last June his book The Jews of Sing Sing was published.
