Genie Milgrom has become well-known recently for her book My 15 Grandmothers and for her real- life story that inspired it. Born to Cuban parents who emigrated to Miami after having lived the good life in Havana until the ’60s, Milgrom felt uncomfortable as a Catholic from an extremely young age and eventually converted to Judaism.

Thereafter, she began a journey of research that took her many years and led to her being able to prove her Sephardi origins in Spain and Portugal.
