Uncovering Family Histories with the Tenement Museum
Join the Tenement Museum for a conversation about how sources and records can tell us stories about migration and family history. The Tenement Museum researches and interprets the history of real families who lived in tenements at 97 and 103 Orchard Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. On this program, Senior Director of Curatorial Affairs David Favaloro will share two family stories of migration through the records the museum uncovered over time. Using census records, court documents, and oral histories, you’ll hear about the stories we found in the archives, and what surprises we’ve discovered along the way.

Presented by David Favaloro . David is Senior Director of Curatorial Affairs and Hebrew Technical Institute Research Fellow at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum. He is jointly responsible for interpreting the history of the tenements at 97 and 103 Orchard Street, with an emphasis on research and exhibit development. He also oversees the museum’s preservation, conservation, and collections management programs. David has been with the Tenement Museum since 2004. He holds a Master of Arts in American History and an Advanced Certificate in Public History from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.
