Alec Ferretti - Leveraging Freedom of Information Laws to Procure Novel Records

  • 8 Apr 2023
  • 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Gulf Gate Public Library - 7112 Curtiss Ave, Sarasota, Fl 34239

This lecture will explain how State and Federal Freedom of Information Laws work, and what genealogists can and cannot accomplish with them.  Alec will discuss Governments’ hesitations to provide genealogists with documents to which they are legally entitled, and the tools we have to plead our cases.

Alec Ferretti is a New-York-City-based professional genealogist, who works for the Wells Fargo Family & Business History Center, researching family histories for high net worth clients.  Alec specializes in the genealogy of 20th century immigrants to the United States.  He is a regular lecturer at genealogical societies and conferences.  He serves as the President of the New York Genealogy & Technology Group, was recently elected to the Board of Directors of the Association of Professional Genealogists, and serves actively on the Board of Reclaim the Records, a nonprofit dedicated to wrangling public records from obstinate government agencies.

For those members who prefer not to attend in person, we are also broadcasting our meetings via Zoom. Members will be sent a link prior to the meeting date.
