Gena Philibert-Ortega will present, "Jello Molds, Peacocks and Turtle Soup: Genealogy and the History of Food."
My ancestor ate what?! What our ancestors ate was very different from the food that we eat today. Learn more about how food history interacts with your family history including food availability, food during war time, and what our immigrant ancestor ate.
Since our social is around the holidays, we thought this would be a fitting time to reminisce about some of those family dishes that are part of our own family history. To make this event as “social” as possible in a virtual world, please be ready to eat and/or discuss your favorite family dishes. Please note that our December Social is limited to current members of the North Hills Genealogists.
