Topic: "RESEARCHING THE WANDERING JEW: TWO GENERATIONS IN
Guest speaker: Dr. Rhoda Miller
Oral history and early information in our research is often incomplete or
misleading because our ancestors moved a lot. Social history greatly
impacts the lives of generations who lived in Eastern Europe. Research
strategies will be presented that unfolds the stories of a family who were
"wandering Jews" within Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus, England, Canada and the U.S.
Dr. Rhoda Miller is Director of Student Support Services at Dowling

She is a former President of JGSLI and currently a Member-At-Large for JGSLI.
She frequently gives lectures on Jewish genealogy and has spoken many times
