Attending This Might Be the Breakthrough You’ve Been Looking For
As both of my sisters-in-law are Jewish, this is the webinar that I really NEED to attend, as Jewish genealogy is truly foreign for me as I specialize in U.S. genealogy.
Presented by Schelly Talalay Dardashti, the the US Genealogy Advisor for MyHeritage; she has traced her Ashkenazi, Sephardi and Mizrahi families across Iran, Spain, Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine.
Most people do not know who they are more than a few generations back. Some do know, others suspect, but for the majority of genealogists, it is a surprise when they discover Jewish ancestors. Many of these initial discoveries come from having done a DNA test.
What resources are available to those who wish to pursue research in this “new” field? What are the essentials that will help researchers understand their ancestors? What historical events have led to migrations and distance from Jewish ancestry? We will discuss history, migration, essential clues (customs, food, terminology, languages), and much more.
