Speaker: Joel Weintraub
Introduction to Jewish Genealogy
Join Joel Weintraub as he sets out to find the roots of his “Russian” maternal grandfather. Using records in time and space, oral history, research sites, and major online websites including JewishGen and Yad Vashem, a clearer picture of his ethnic and genetic ties to the past become evident. The journey led him to the discovery of a previously unknown Great Aunt. This talk also includes Joel’s research of some of the genealogy of Roz Chast, author of Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? And, that information leads to a surprising discovery by Joel.
