Michigan: Create a family website, March 14

In 2009, Robert Ruskin created a ShtetLink page for Selets (Shiletz), Belarus, for his father’s birthplace.

He is researching his parents’ families (ORECHKIN, SHIFMAN).

Ruskin will demonstrate how participants can create a family website or ShtetLinks site for the Jewish Genealogical Society of Michigan, on Sunday, March 14.

The meeting begins at 11am, at the Holocaust Memorial Center, Farmington Hills.

A JGSMI member, Ruskin is a native Detroiter.

He’s a retired radiologist and graduated from the University of Michigan Medical School in 1955. Until 1996, he was in private practice and at Sinai Hospital in Detroit. He was also an assistant professor of radiology at Wayne State University Medical School and taught a computer filmmaking class at SOAR.

When he retired, he attended the University of Michigan Film School.
