The next meeting of the Phoenix (AZ) Genealogy Group will be held next
Sunday, May 6, starting at 2:00 PM at the Cutler-Plotkin Jewish
Heritage Center, 122 E. Culver St, Phoenix, AZ.
**Please note two changes for this meeting:**
- The start of the meeting is an hour later than usual - at 2 PM
- The location of the meeting is in the cottage at the Cutler-Plotkin Jewish
Heritage Center (AZ Jewish Historical Society campus)
We have made these changes (for this meeting only) to accommodate
those who wish to attend the AZ Jewish Historical Society's Annual
Meeting/Brunch >from 11 AM to 1 PM.
Our speaker will be Ann Marie Williamson, who will present: "Finding
My Father, Finding Myself."
Ann Marie was adopted almost 48 years ago >from a Catholic adoption
agency in Brooklyn, NY. Twenty-four years ago, without the use of DNA,
she found her mother. Unfortunately, her mother gave Ann Marie no
information about her father. With no clues Ann Marie thought she'd
never find him. But recently, after doing DNA testing, she discovered
she is genetically half Ashkenazi Jewish.
Ann Marie will share the ups and downs of her journey and demonstrate
how she used DNA results, along with genealogy research, to trace her
father's family and discover his identity.
I look forward to seeing you next Sunday at 2 PM.
Emily Garber, Chair
Phoenix Jewish Genealogy Group
