SYJCC Social Clubs- Open House Program
Meet the members of the Suffolk Y JCC Social Clubs.
The Women’s and Men’s Clubs invites all adults 60+ to join them for this stimulating, interesting and special program with speaker Renee Steinig through zoom.
In the course of decades of genealogical research Renee Steinig has uncovered many “skeleton in the closet” cases of mental illness, an illegitimate birth, infidelity, abandonment, and even murder, all hushed up for decades. A Viennese refugee whose baby was born in a New York State psychiatric hospital; a suburban businessman who led two lives; a Romanian immigrant hanged or so his family thought for “stealing horses”; a Jewish GI’s love affair in Belgium during World War II; a young woman who married, had a baby, then vanished. Renee will talk about these family secrets, research tools that uncovered them, and the reunions, and reconciliations that followed many of her discoveries.
