Lisa Brahin is an accomplished Jewish genealogist and researcher from New Jersey. A graduate of George Washington University’s Columbian College, she is a two-town project coordinator for Jewishgen.org’s Yizkor Book Project (Holocaust Memorial Book Project). Lisa hopes that her book, Tears Over Russia: A Search for Family and the Legacy of Ukraine’s Pogroms, will inspire continued interest in family history research. She also hopes that it will shine a light on an underrepresented period of Jewish history — the 1917 – 1921 pogroms in Ukraine — that prefigured the horror that was to come. Lisa Brahin is a Jewish genealogist and a JBC author. Invite her to speak virtually at your event on the JBC Authors Network Tour 2022 – 2023, and learn how to uncover the secrets of your family’s past.
