From the presenter, Eric Migdal:

I am a 10 year resident of Pompton Lakes NJ. I am happily married with a son, a daughter, and a bonus son.

I have been doing family history research for over 26 years, as well as assisting clients with family tree building, DNA test analysis, and safely & effectively contacting unknown family members.

As an adoptee, I spent many years searching for my biological family with very few results.

My starting information was wrong and the assumptions I made were also incorrect. I did DNA testing to assist me with finding the truth about my family, and it ultimately lead me to the correct family.

Records honored Abe as a "Promising Artist of the 21st Century." He has a unique identity on the instrument and as a bandleader, featuring innovative and emotionally-charged energy that is unrelenting. He has been described as “a musician with heart and soul, who puts his beautiful sound at the service of emotion.” by world-renowned pianist Jean-Michel Pilc. Abe is also equally as passionate about music education as he is about jazz. He has conducted jazz assemblies for thousands of children in public schools throughout the country. Abe also serves on the faculty at Fairleigh Dickinson University as an adjunct professor of guitar.
