Lessons in Jewish DNA -- One Man's Successes and What He Learned
7 September at 19:30-21:00
Yigal Yadin 41, Modi'in
Join us for the next meeting of the Israel Genealogy Research
Association (IGRA) in Modi'in.
Israel Pickholtz will be speaking on "Lessons in Jewish DNA -- One
Man's Successes and What He Learned on the Journey".
The hottest topic in genealogy in recent years has been genetics and
many thousands of genealogists have ordered DNA tests. Most of those
haven't a clue what to do with their results. The situation is more
complicated among Jews, who have married "within the tribe". Marrying
within a closed community -- "endogamy" -- has barely been addressed by
the non-Jewish genetic genealogy community.
This presentation will take a "how I did it" approach, demonstrating
the successes Israel has had in his own families and the general
lessons which are applicable to all genetic genealogy research. His
goal is to inspire his listeners and readers to say "I can do this!"
Israel is a professional genealogist who has been doing genealogy
research for over twenty years. He is originally >from the U.S. and now
lives in Jerusalem. Israel has lectured worldwide at genealogy
conferences and genealogy societies, including at the IAJGS Conference
in 2013, 2014 and 2016. He is the author of the book, "ENDOGAMY: One
Family, One People". He will have copies of his book for sale. He
manages test kits of over ninety family members.
