Lara Diamond is President of JGSMD and has been researching her family
for 25 years. She has traced all branches of her family back to Europe
and most multiple generations back in Europe using Russian Empire-era
and Austria-Hungarian Empire records. Most of her research is in
modern-day Ukraine, with a smattering of Belarus and Poland. She leads
JewishGen's Subcarpathia SIG, is on the Ukraine Sig board, and also
runs several town-focused projects to collect documentation to assist
all those researching ancestors >from common towns. She blogs about her
mostly Eastern European research at

In this session, Lara Diamond will share insights on how to use
genetic testing for genealogical research citing various types of
tests available (including autosomal, yDNA and mtDNA). She will
explain the types of genealogical questions each test can help answer,
how each company presents results, the strategies for transferring
results >from one company to another, and how to benefit >from each.
