The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island, with Rhoda Miller

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island, with Rhoda Miller

ENGLISH CORNER, CON LINDA JIMÉNEZ – This week’s trivia question: When were the first organized Jewish communities developed on Long Island, and what problems did their members have at the beginning?

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island (JGSLI) was founded to encourage and assist the pursuit of Jewish family history. Their goal is to bring together people interested in tracing their Jewish family roots. They are a non-profit organization, and work to educate members and the public regarding how to go about finding one’s roots. We recently attended one of their monthly meetings where a very interesting presentation was made about the use of DNA testing, the different companies that do it and how their studies differ.

Rhoda Miller is a board member and past president of the JGSLI. She spoke with us about the organization and its many different activities.
