Book Discussion: Futureface: A Family Mystery, an Epic Quest, and the Secret to Belonging

January 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Join us for our first book discussion of 2019 on Sunday, January 20 at 2pm at HCRJ! We’ll discuss the book, Futureface: A Family Mystery, an Epic Quest, and the Secret to Belonging, by Alex Wagner, a noted TV news anchor and host of the former Alex Wagner Show on MSNBC. Wagner’s new book focuses on her personal quest investigating the family stories she grew up with by doing genealogical research and DNA testing, with a goal of learning who she is and where her family came from.

Stefani Elkort Twyford will lead our discussion. She will talk about the book as well as discuss her own journey over the past 10 years doing DNA testing and exploring her family’s genealogy that resulted in an eventual trip to the “old country” this past summer. She will give some pointers on how you can get started now in exploring your own family legacy.

Stefani is the current President of the Greater Houston Jewish Genealogical Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting, preserving and disseminating genealogical information, techniques and research tools among individuals who are interested in Jewish Genealogy and family history. Stefani is the president and founder of Legacy Multimedia, a company she started over 16 years ago designing, developing and implementing award-winning video biographies and tribute videos. Her mission is to help families, individuals, companies and organizations chronicle history, share life stories, connect generations and preserve their legacies in timeless, high-quality multimedia presentations.

Futureface can be purchased on Amazon. Refreshments will be provided. Sign up for this book discussion with Justin at 713-782-4162 or admin@hcrj.org.
