The Minnesota Jewish Genealogical Society will hold a panel discussion on the

Genealogy, DNA and Adoption: Blessings and Pitfalls

Our panelists will be:

Sally Abrams, who recently discovered through DNA analysis a half sister she
never knew she had

Claude Riedel, a retired psychologist, an adoptee himself, who specialized in
adoption in his practice. Claude will address the emotional aspects of searching
for birth parents and siblings and his feelings about the use of DNA kits

Heewon Lee, also an adoptee, is a graduate student in the genetic counseling
program at the University of Minnesota. Heewon's current research explores the
ways in which adopted adults use direct-to-consumer genetic testing

The panel will be moderated by Walter Elias, President of the MNJGS.
