Scandals, Shandehs, and Lies:The Stories Families Don't Tell


Renee Steinig

In the course of decades of genealogical research Renee Steinig has uncovered many a "skeleton in the closet" — cases of mental illness, illegitimate birth, infidelity, abandonment, and even murder, all hushed up for decades. She will share with us these family secrets, the research tools that uncovered them and the reunions and reconciliations that followed many of her discoveries.        

Renee Steinig began to do genealogical research in the 1970s  Many family trees and some 18 years later, she began to accept client work.  Her specialties include New York research, locating lost family, and due diligence for probate cases.  She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and has testified as an expert witness in several New York Surrogate’s Courts.  A past president and longtime trustee of the JGS of Long Island, Renee is also a director of Gesher Galicia and serves as its discussion group moderator and Family Finder editor.
