Sephardic SIG #Sephardim Genie Milgrom Receives the Four Sephardic Synagogues of Jerusalem Award #sephardic


Jan Meisels Allen
 

Recently, Genie Milgrom was awarded the Four Sephardic Synagogues of
Jerusalem award for her efforts in promoting the Iberian Peninsula's Jewish
heritage.

Many of us have heard Genie's fascinating story at IAJGS conferences or at
our local JGSs, of being born Catholic in Cuba and her journey to find her
Jewish roots taking her back 22 generations beyond 1492 to the village of
Fermoselle (Spain) in the hills of Zamora and later to the Inquisition.
Her story depicted in her book, My 15 Grandmothers and her follow-up How I
Found My 15 Grandmothers used genealogy methodology. Genie is the past
president of the JGS of Greater Miami.
