March 25, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
New England Historical Genealogical Society
This program is presented in partnership with the Wyner Family Jewish Heritage Center, The Vilna Shul, and JGSGB.
Tracing her family back 15 generations to 1405 pre-Inquisition Spain, Genie Milgrom was able to unravel the web of lies and deceit that her family had spun around themselves in order to survive the Spanish Inquisition. Born in Cuba to a Catholic family, Genie Milgrom has traced her maternal lineage back 600 years to the Jews of pre-Inquisition Portugal and Spain. In this talk, she will present her amazing personal journey to uncover her Jewish origins.
Genie Milgrom served as President of the Society for Crypto Judaic Studies at Colorado State University and as President of the JGS of Greater Miami. Her books My 15 Grandmothers and How I Found My 15 Grandmothers have won Latino Author Book Awards. She is an internationally acclaimed speaker. Milgrom spoke to JGSGB on this subject in May 2017.
