Darcy Stamler has been researching her family’s history since 2010, an endeavor that started with a ship manifest from Ellis Island and the subsequent settlement of Galician-born grandparents in New York City’s Lower East Side, and which led in 2018 to the surprising discovery of an extensive line of family members in Israel. In recent years she has become actively engaged in Jewish heritage preservation projects in Western Ukraine.
Darcy is a Route Manager of the Ukrainian Route of Jewish Heritage, which is being planned and executed through the European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture and Heritage (AEPJ) and will ultimately be certified by the Council of Europe. She is also a trustee of Heritage Springs, a non-profit organization based in Ukraine and the United States that is preserving Jewish heritage sites in Ukraine.
Darcy was born in New York and has also lived primarily in the San Francisco Bay, Washington DC, and Los Angeles areas. Her professional career has included management positions at several large entertainment and media companies, and she has owned and operated a Los Angeles-based marketing agency since 2004. She has a bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Los Angeles, and a master’s degree from the University of California at Berkeley.
