He has been Assistant Archivist of the Brooklyn Diocese since 2000,
received his Ph.D. in Church History from Catholic University and teaches
History at St. Francis College. He has authored a history of the Brooklyn
Diocese entitled “Diocese of Immigrants” and lectures frequently on

the regular meeting will start at 7:30. GGG members and guests will have
access to the building beginning at 6:30 PM.

Among the many benefits of membership are a newsletter published ten times a
year, a database of surnames, a free translation service, a book and CD
lending library, interesting guest speakers at the meetings, mentoring, a
