Re: Using DNA matches to find Jewish ancestors #dna

Ellen Slotoroff Zyroff

The following article in the Washington Post is likely the story to which you're referring.  Two of the sisters of the five children of the Jewish father and Irish mother were in contact with various of us who are contact people for DNA accounts with DNA matches with their brother, and/or with the sisters.  The sisters, having realized through casual DNA testing of one of them that one of their birth parents was Jewish and realizing that it must have been their father, were trying to track down relatives of the birth family of her siblings and her. It was an amazing story and quite a detective pursuit and I enjoyed trying to help in their quest, by adding my two cents on what they might pursue next to figure out which Fordham hospital male baby born in a certain 10 day period might be their birth father, given that NYC hospital birth records were at the time still sealed for another few years.

Some time ago I read a story (in Jewish Gen) about a mistake that occurred in an hospital in USA anda because of this a Jewish and an Irish baby were switched. The story was told by the daughter of the Jewish boy that was educated by the Irish family. Try to find this story.
