In April 2020, a cousin of mine who was SIPing in NYC suggested that a Zoom call among our surviving cousins would be a good way to catch up in the midst of the pandemic. I took up the challenge and started figuring out what needed to happen in order to pull it off. The idea mushroomed to include as much of the family tree as possible, with a recognition of the unfamiliarity of the younger generation branches with each other. On June 7, we staged the Milgram/Weiner Family Tree-union with more than 100 viewers attending through 50 gallery windows. My talk describes the process and the successful result.
