SORT BY Relevancy
Confinement in a prison cell creates a whole set of memories that a person may want to forget. What is it like to return home after a long period of being controlled and restricted? What psychological damage to ones self esteem needs to be repaired and how can that be done? What unseen emotional scars need healing, and can a person's family really understand what he or she went through? How does one offer support to a family member or friend returning from prison
Join Ms. Mary & Dr. Janet Arceneaux as they discuss family and the dysfunction thereof...Family baggage! And by baggage we mean past hurts, happiness and attitudes. For example, we all have developed ways of dealing with situations from our families of origin. Do you attend family gatherings out of obligation or for the sheer joy of being around the people you love being around the most, FAMILY...let's discuss the weight of familial expectations!
Your family has lived in the same home for 40 years and due to planned or unplanned circumstances, the home must be sold. Your parents may want to downsize to a patio home or independent living to remove them of worrying about repairing the roof or hiring a gardener to mow the yard. An unplanned event might entail them moving to assisted living, a long-term care facility or death.
When either situation occurs, it is time for the family to rally around to lend support. This sounds easy, not always....

Why the New York Times is Wrong – Using Basic Genealogy Tools and Methods to Show that Your Family Name Was Not Changed At Ellis Island.
There is a common misconception, call it an old wives tale or an urban legend, that family names were often changed at Ellis Island. Such myths gain a great deal of credibility when newspapers such as the New York Times, the country’s “paper of record”, perpetuates these myths by repeating them, in this case in obituaries.
When Kenneth saw one of these obituaries a few years ago, he wrote to the Times pointing out their error and suggesting sources that they could check to verify what he was saying. When they seemed to ignore him, he did the research on the family of the person named in the obituary and was able to show what the name was when the family immigrated and how the family name changed as they adapted to life in the United States. He sent all of the proof to the Times and was still ignored. Finally the Times responded. They were not going to do anything to correct the erroneous obituary but suggested they might do a news story on the issue. The experience led him to do a search of other Times obituaries with the Ellis Island story. He located about half a dozen. After doing the research on each, he was able to show the original name for each of them.
Kenneth A. Bravo received his JD from The Ohio State University, College of Law and his B.A. degree in Economics from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey. He is Vice President of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and, the former president and current member of the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland. Bravo has lectured on a number of genealogical topics.
