We are excited to introduce

Dr. Janette Silverman

as part of our staff.

She will be working every 1st & 3rd Friday 2-4 pm

Janette Silverman, has been active in genealogical research for over three decades.  She began her genealogical journey by researching her own family.  While she began searching for her family's roots with absolute certainty that there would be no way to find any data on her family prior to their arrival in the United States, she quickly learned that when it comes to genealogical research preconceived assumptions or received family lore are often wrong, an approach which has become the polestar of her historically verifiable approach to genealogy.  Not only did she find her family roots in Europe, she actually located and traced verifiable historical proof of her four grandparents' families in Eastern Europe.  Her personal family tree now numbers over 18,000 persons and traces her ancestral roots back to the fifteenth century in Europe.

Janette Silverman has earned a bachelor's and two masters' degrees, and a Doctorate.  Her doctoral dissertation centers on genealogy and is entitled "In Living Memory." She has also been active in the genealogical research community.  She served as President of the Phoenix Jewish Genealogy Society for 5 years, works as a volunteer for JewishGen as the Ukraine Special Interest Group (SIG) Coordinator, serves as a moderator for an online genealogical discussion group, and now volunteers at the NY Family History Center. She previously volunteered on transcription projects for the Long Island, New York Italian Genealogy Group. Janette teaches beginner and intermediate level genealogy classes and speaks to groups all over the United States on the use of specific kinds of archives and documents in genealogical research.
