“Marcia’s Genealogical Journey,” Nov. 15

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut (JGSCT) will host the First Annual Marcia Indianer Meyers Memorial lecture on Sunday, Nov.15, at 1:30 pm.

Arthur S. Meyers, widower of Marcia Indianer Meyers and a retired librarian, genealogist and JGSCT board member, will present “Marcia’s Genealogical Journey.” 

Marcia Indianer Meyers began exploring family history in her father’s jewelry and watch repair store in Detroit in the mid-1940s, when she asked her father about the origin of the family name “Indianer.” Her father, however, loved to talk more about Chodorow, the shtetl in Poland that he lived until after World War I.  

Her interest in learning about her family led Marcia to a lifetime of research and exploring family history. “As much as I helped in her work, she ignited my interest, and shaped me in the same way with my family.,” says Arthur Meyers. 

When Marcia died in November 2019 in Middletown, shortly after her 80th birthday, she was still just as eager then to help new friends explore their own history.
