How Uncovering my Grandmother’s Deepest Secret Revealed a Rich Jewish Ancestry @ Burgundy Room, North York Memorial Hall | Toronto | Ontario | Canada

Speaker: Coral Grant

“Initially, all I had was a piece of paper with a few names and huge gaps in what was a pathetic looking family tree. My first step in filling in the blanks was to send off information requests, to many family members. When my Dad received his request, he was prompted to call me; with what he thought was a family “bombshell”. The man my Grandmother was married to – whom we called Grandpa Fred was not my biological grandfather! Then who was? Please join me on a journey that began in the garment district in Toronto in the early 1930s and ends in 19th century Eastern Europe. A secret my Grandmother thought she had forever concealed eventually unravelled but not without a major road block and several twists and turns. The magic of genetic DNA testing ultimately revealed the answer to my question and so much more. A genealogical adventure my Grandmother would never have imagined.”
