Are you considering taking a DNA test? Have you taken a DNA test to learn about your ancestry? Are you confused by the results? This presentation covers the kinds of
tests available, the major DNA testing services and the differences between them, and how to interpret your results to get the most out of them. Learn about Jewish
genealogy DNA challenges.
David Ellis is JGSGB Board member and leader of the Litvak and Galicia SIGs. He discovered dozens of ancestors unknown to his relatives and initiated contact
with distant cousins who were out of touch for many years. He enjoys helping people research their ancestry and is writing a document describing his research.
