Ashkenazi and Sephardic Genealogy - Chalk and Cheese? #announcements


What can Ashkenazi and Sephardic genealogy learn from each other, and do
these very different pursuits belong under a single umbrella? ‘Jewish
genealogy’ is often seen as a synonym for Ashkenazi genealogy, especially in
the United States. David Mendoza researches his ancestry in Lithuania and
Poland, but mainly focuses on the Sephardic side of his family. He compares
and contrasts the two approaches to genealogy.

David Mendoza has over twenty years of experience in Jewish genealogy and
was co-founder of both The Sephardic Diaspora group on Facebook and the
Sephardic Genealogical Society. His comments on the Portuguese nationality
debate were reported in the Portuguese and international media, including
the Wall Street Journal. He has a background in business-to-business market
research and served on a committee of the UK Market Research Society. He is
a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.

This meeting is on Sunday 29 January 2023 at 11am in LA, 2pm NYC, 7pm
