Reflections on 2019 Katz Family Reunion:
Lessons Learned
or
the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!

Deborah A. Katz, JD, PhD
Reunion Organizer

DEborah Katz

What was I thinking? There hadn’t been an official Katz family reunion since 1905, and I hadn’t lived in Cleveland for years. The IAJGS annual conference was announced for Cleveland and I was inspired. Would there be any interest in a larger family group meeting around the conference and how could we connect with the WRHS Research Library that held our Katz archive? It was January 6, 2019 and the conference started on July 28. Clearly, there was much work to be done but not an impossible task. The larger question, of course, and one that we all need to ask as modern genealogists is: Why plan a family reunion? Is there any value in bringing our past to our future and at what costs? Please join us to learn about one family’s reunion journey and bring your questions for honest conversation about “how-to’s,” next steps and lessons learned.
