Genie Milgrom, born in Cuba to a Catholic family, has traced her maternal lineage back 600 years to the Jews of pre-Inquisition Portugal and Spain. In her first talk, “My Search for Jewish Roots,” she will present her amazing personal journey to uncover her Jewish origins. In her second talk, “How to Trace Your ‘New Christian’ Ancestors,” she will describe the Catholic, notarial and Inquisition records that led to her discovery and ultimately persuaded Rabbinic authorities to recognize her Jewish identity.

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.

Refreshments will be served. A book sale and signing will follow the lectures.
