Tonight host Jane Wilcox welcomes Genie Milgrom, the author of My 15 Grandmothers. Genie made headlines in January when her story of tracing her lineage to Crypto Jews became known. We will talk about Genie's journey of discovery, the ancestors she learned about on the way, and her book. It's a fascinating tale.
Genie Milgrom crossed the planet in search of her Crypto Jewish or Marrano ancestors. She was able to find 15 grandmothers in an unbroken maternal lineage going back to the early 1500's. It was also possible to successfully prove that her family had been Converso Jews from before the Spanish Inquisition. This Jewish lineage was traced back to a small village called Fermoselle in the province of Zamora, Spain right on The Duero River, across from Mogadouro, Portugal.
