    Bio:

    While researching a family scandal involving her great aunt, referred to as the "Kissing Blonde", Robin B. Seidenberg realized that historical newspapers were a fantastic resource. She discovered that another great aunt - described as "the most universally famous girl in America" and "the girl with that schoolgirl complexion" - had a career on Broadway and in Hollywood..

    A member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, Robin Seidenberg currently serves as executive vice president of The Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois and president of Lake County Area Computer Enthusiasts.

    As a former college French teacher, she has used her linguistic skills to translate family records from Polish and Old Cyrillic.
