Dear Friends,

As many of you know, I started FamilyTreeDNA with the help of JewishGen back in 2000. We were the first website dedicated to "Genealogy by Genetics" and have since developed into one of the 
leading genetic genealogy organizations in the world. Technologies have changed, new research methods have been discovered, and millions of people have now tested DNA. But throughout it all, I have never forgotten how we got our start - by using JewishGen.

I still remember having lunch with Susan E King, the legendary founder of JewishGen, and describing to her how genealogists could utilize DNA to research their family. It was a very exciting concept, and she really understood it's tremendous potential. She encouraged me to promote our work on the JewishGen Discussion Group,  and my first 10 DNA kits were sold to JewishGen members. 

Of course, just as the field of genetic genealogy has grown, so has JewishGen. The sheer amount of data and resources available on JewishGen - for no charge - is unparalleled. And thousands of people continue to turn to JewishGen each month seeking information about who their relatives were, and how they lived.

So today, as we approach the end of 2021 - the most critical fundraising deadline of the year for our beloved JewishGen - I would like to give back to this organization which means so much to me. As such, I will be matching all gifts up to $25k. 
Please join me with a gift of any amount today. Your contribution will make a real difference, and help JewishGen continue it's vital mission of preserving our family history and heritage for future generations. (Gifts of $100 or more will qualify for premium features).

Please click here to donate now.

If you can’t donate online, please call the main JewishGen number at 646-492-5972, and a team member will process your gift over the phone.

Thank you for partnering with me and in support of JewishGen.
Wishing you and your families a happy and healthy New Year.
