    Hollywood and the movie industry included genealogy references and techniques in many of their productions for a long time. Comics and cartoons also used genealogy to create intrigue and interest. Daniel will show how these classics reveal family history and relationships— sometimes hidden, and sometimes in plain view. Come and enjoy this kids’ lecture for grownups— revive your childhood moments and discover some of the characters’ family secrets you never knew were there.

    Daniel Horowitz is the Genealogy Expert at MyHeritage. He is responsible for outreach and liaison with genealogy societies, bloggers, and media, as well as lecturing and attending conferences around the world. He was the teacher and the study guide editor of the family history project "Searching for My Roots" in Venezuela for 15 years.

  • Fourth Annual Overdose and Prevention Vigil

    August 29, 2019  7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
    Montgomery County Executive Office Building, 101 Monroe St, Rockville, MD 20850, USA

    County to Host Fourth Annual Overdose and Prevention Vigil to Commemorate International Overdose Awareness Day August 29

    The public is invited to attend the fourth annual Overdose and Prevention Vigil on Thursday, August 29 at 7 p.m. The vigil commemorates International Overdose Awareness Day, a global event, aimed at raising awareness of overdose and reducing the stigma of drug related deaths. The event will be held in the Executive Office Building cafeteria, located at 101 Monroe Street in Rockville. A resource fair featuring substance abuse prevention and treatment information will be held at 5:30 p.m.

    The theme for this year’s program-“We’re All in This Together”- will be a gathering of education, remembrance and hope. Fatal overdoses have risen sharply and many community residents have been personally touched by addiction. One in five adults experience a mental health issue each year and yet there remains stigma attached to the issues of mental illness and addiction , which often causes people to suffer silently. Organizers hope by rallying together as a community, Montgomery County can combat the isolation and shame that can negatively impact prevention, treatment, support and recovery and that losses can be reduced.

    Those wishing to have a loved one memorialized in a video can send up to eight photos, with name, date of birth and date of death to mcrememberingourlovedones@gmail.com . Submissions are needed by Thursday, August 22.

    The event is hosted by S.O.U.L. (Surviving Our Ultimate Loss), a support group for families who have lost a child to a fatal overdose, in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services, the Circuit Court’s Adult Drug Court and the City of Rockville.

    Free parking is available in the jury parking lot located at the corner of East Jefferson (Rt. 28) and Monroe Streets.

    September 12, 2019  7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
    Regal Majestic & IMAX, 900 Ellsworth Dr, Silver Spring, MD 20910, USA

    Join Us For A Special One-Night Only Screening of a Powerful Documentary about the Financial Independence Retire Early Movement, a growing community dedicated to changing our toxic relationship with money.

    Choose FI DC Metro will be hosting a one-time screening of Playing with FIRE at Regal Majestic 20 & IMAX Theater in Downtown Silver Spring on Thursday, September 12th at 7:30 PM.

    Playing with FIRE is the story of a successful entrepreneur living in Southern California, Scott Rieckens, who had built a "dream life": a happy marriage, a two-year-old daughter, a membership to a boat club, and a BMW in the driveway. But underneath the surface, Scott was creatively stifled, depressed, and overworked trying to help pay for his family's beach-town lifestyle. Then one day, Scott listened to a podcast interview that changed everything.

    Three months later, he had quit his job, convinced his family to leave their home, and cut their expenses in half. Follow Scott and his family as they devote everything to FIRE (financial independence, retire early), a subculture obsessed with maximizing wealth and happiness. Filled with inspiring stories and the influencers who make up the FIRE movement, Playing with FIRE is one family's journey to acquire the one thing that money can't buy: a simpler - and happier - life.

    We are so pleased to announce this special event.

    Tickets for the event are $12 each and can be purchased here: https://www.tugg.com/events/playing-with-fire-cxve

The play examines the mental, emotional, and psychological hardship one man has to endure in order to secure his livelihood in the only home he has known: Los Angeles.

    Gaváta is the local Author who wrote Get Yourself Together First which is a true story about forgiveness and restoration. It encourages addicts to get themselves “together” before trying to restore relationships, all the while still encouraging broken families that they can forgive. Through raw and honest storytelling, Gaváta uncover the lie that broken people feel – isolation and shame, or that they are the only ones going through these things. This book serves as encouragement that forgiveness can happen. If someone has suffered at the hands of an addict physically, mentally or emotionally, or if an addict is trying to figure out how to regain trust and receive forgiveness, this book is a must read.
