PROGRAM CHANGE: David Ellis – DNA Basics Workshop

September 22, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm EDT

at Temple Emanuel

Due to a family medical emergency, Joan Nathan will not be presenting her program.

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 workshop 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.

David EllisDavid 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.


Join us for our annual Special Interest Group (SIG) Meet and Greet. Following the talk by Joan Nathan, come meet our SIG leaders and others from your ancestral countries. See which SIGs match your family backgrounds.  Current  SIGs are Belarus, Bessarabia, Galicia, Germany, Litvak, Poland, Sephardi, and Ukraine. All are welcome to attend!

Admission is free for members, $5 for non-members. Refreshments will be served.
