How to Grow Empathy From Uncovering Your Roots | Rich Venezia | TEDxPittsburgh

vor 2 Jahren

Tracing our family’s history can take us down some interesting paths. Take it from a genealogist who thinks that each of those paths, regardless of how bumpy or smooth, can lead us to a surprising place: empathy for others.

Rich Venezia is a professional genealogist and founder of Rich Roots Genealogy, which specializes in 20th-century immigrant ancestry. Each day, Rich has the privilege of researching a different family's pursuit of the American dream. In his work as a professional genealogist, Rich has helped many families find their roots in Italy, Ireland, Lithuania, Canada, the US, and many other countries. He was a member of the research team on Genealogy Roadshow for two seasons, and also consulted on the show Follow Your Past. Rich lectures nationwide, is a frequent blogger on various websites, and is President of the North Hills Genealogists in Pittsburgh.
