GSBC MEETINGS

Ridgwood NJ, The Genealogical Society of Bergen County (GSBC) will welcome CNBC host, Bill Griffeth, who will speak on his latest book The Stranger in My Genes.

With almost 30 years experience in business television, Bill Griffeth is one of the most respected financial journalists in the country. Best known for his quick wit and his ability to think on his feet, he brings an extensive knowledge of the markets and market history to CNBC’s programming.

Griffeth has written four books, “The Stranger in My Genes,” in 2016; “By Faith Alone: One Family’s Epic Journey Through 400 Years of American Protestantism,” in 2007; “Bill Griffeth’s Ten Steps to Financial Prosperity,” published in 1994; and “The Mutual Fund Masters,” in 1995

In the summer of 2012, Griffeth, longtime genealogy buff, took a DNA test that had an unexpected outcome: “If the results were correct, it meant that the family I had spent years documenting was not my own.”

In this book, Bill undertakes a quest to solve the mystery of his origins—a quest which will shake his sense of identity. As he takes us on his journey, we learn about choices made by his ancestors, parents, and others–and we see Bill measure and weigh his own difficult choices as he confronts the past.

Program starts at 7pm; the presentation will be preceded by a brief business meeting. All are welcome.
