    • Virtual Meeting (Zoom)

    Come join our general meeting on Zoom.  Gather and socialize starting at 6:30 PM Pacific Time.  Then at 7:00 PM, Ron Arons will speak about "Sex, Lies and Genealogical Tape."  Formerly, this family history spin-off of the movie "Sex, Lies and Video Tape," was known as "Putting the Flesh on the Bones."

    Born in New York, Ron worked for many years as a marketer at many high-tech companies, including Texas Instruments, Ashton-Tate, and Sybase, before deciding to work full time on his first book, "The Jews of Sing Sing."  Ron became interested in understanding his roots after he lost both his parents to cancer 16-18 years ago.  In the process of researching his criminal ancestor's past, Ron has traced his roots to England, Poland, Romania, Ukraine, Belarus, and Lithuania.  In 2005 Ron won a Hackman Research Residency Award from the New York State Archives to continue his research of New York Jewish criminals.  In January 2008, Ron appeared on the PBS television series, "The Jewish Americans," as the acknowledged expert on Jewish criminals of New York's Lower East Side.  Arons tours the country giving educational and entertaining presentations on Jewish criminals and Jewish genealogy.  Ron earned a B.S. in Engineering from Princeton University and an MBA from the University of Chicago.
