NJ Room’s Version of the NBC TV Hit, “Who Do You Think You Are?”
a BIG Hit with 30 Intensely Interested Attendees
On May 22, 2012 the NJ Room offered a workshop entitled, “Who Do You Think You Are?” building upon the wildly successful NBC television show which was partially filmed here in November 2010 for the Rosie O’Donnell segment that aired in February 2011, and for which the department is currently working with the BBC on an English celebrity – still a mystery to us since the ancestors lived here over 100 years ago.
Women in Action Awards
Cynthia Harris Honored as one of 27 Women in Action at the Jersey City Women’s History Month Program on March 30, 2012
From the looks of each woman’s biography, no one was seeking out an award. Each was in her was in her own sphere, making a difference and making tracks to her next assignment.
Such is Cynthia Harris in the execution of her duties as manager of the New Jersey Room at the Main Library. It was perfectly right and fitting that the Jersey City Mayor and Municipal Council award her during National Women’s History Month 2012.
Jersey City Council President Peter Brennan nominated Cynthia for the Women in Action award, which was given out in a ceremony in the beautiful Anna Cucci Memorial Council Chambers at the historic City Hall on Thursday evening, March 29, 2012. One of 27 women, Cynthia beamed when she approached the podium to receive her award from Jersey City Council President Brennan, Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy, and First Lady Maureen.
