Joan has been working with the Straus family for 30 years and is the director of the Straus Historical Society. The Straus family owned Macy’s and Abraham & Straus department stores, Oscar S. Straus served in President Theodore Roosevelt’s Cabinet and Isidor and Ida Straus went down in the Titanic. Oscar was one of the founders and the first president of the American Jewish Historical Society.that what you do with genealogy is only one part of what we all should be doing. There is genealogical research, historical research and writing about what you know.
As a Straus Historical Society project, Joan has written several books or helped edit books written by Straus family members. Joan writes, “It’s not the information you have, or how much information you have, but what you do with it that counts.”
Join Joan in a discussion of taking your research and first steps toward getting your family story published.
