Michael White joined the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Boston in 2010. His grandmother Fannie Linetsky White sparked his interest in genealogy by telling him stories about her immigration to America. His interest in family history was sustained by growing up in South Florida in close proximity to his grandparents and some great-aunts and great-uncles. In the early 1990s, one of his great-aunts sent him scraps of paper that contained her family history notes, which includes relatives that were born in the late 1700s. To develop his skills in genealogy, Michael completed the JGSGB’s Foundations of Jewish Genealogical Research course in 2010, and Boston University’s Genealogy Principles course during the summer of 2021. BU’s Genealogy Principles course is the preview for the actual genealogist certification course. Michael is not a certified genealogist but aspires to achieve that someday.
