Plans for the 35th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy in
Jerusalem >from July 6-10, 2015 are in full swing. The full program is
rich in activities and possibilities. Unique to this conference is the
opportunity for you to take advantage of having a family reunion with your
relatives living in Israel. Six million Jews live in Israel and they are
related to Jews throughout the world. One/some of them are related to
you! This is a grand opportunity to get to know them, explore family ties
and links and break down brick walls in your research. Use our volunteer
experts to help you contact your relatives and arrange for a family
reunion during the conference period. Look for our guide and tips to
planning for your meeting here. Many of us have found testimony at Yad
Vashem on our family members by Israelis whom we do not know. Now is the
time to enlist our help and connect with them and their descendants.

As previously announced, a Shabbaton (Friday-Saturday) weekend will
precede the Conference, followed by an Exploration Sunday of tours and
programs (including a Yad Vashem option) prior to the official Conference
opening on Monday.

Visit www.iajgs2015.org to register now! Registration is now open for
everyone including Israeli residents.

We have negotiated cancellation insurance that will cover both hotel and
total registration refunds, valid up to almost the eve of the conference

Family finder test results #dna

Hana Abdul-Haq <abdulhaq.hana@...>
 

Recently I did the family finder test offered by familytreedna because
I wanted to confirm the relationshipt between me and another person
who according to our genealogies we are 3rd degree cousins. When we
got the results it said that we are 5th degree cousins.

Is it possible? Has anyone ever been in such a situation that you have
a cousin and you get the wrong relationship predicted by
familytreedna?

Thank you for any insights.

Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
