September 11, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
– Zoom Meeting
Discovering a Holocaust survivor’s true identity, finding relatives assumed dead, and reuniting families are some of the successes that Jennifer Mendelsohn has accomplished as a professional genealogist. Her expertise lies in reuniting people through dogged paper trail research and careful DNA analysis. Mendelsohn will share these incredible stories and how she succeeded in locating the information and the people, along with tips and best practices for reconnecting with lost relatives.
A widely published journalist, Jennifer Mendelsohn is a DNA “sleuth”, featured in the 2019 bestseller Inheritance by Dani Shapiro. She serves on the board of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland and administers Facebook’s Jewish Genetic Genealogy group. In addition, she created #resistancegenealogy, a project that uses genealogical and historical records to fight disinformation and honor America’s immigrant past. Her work is widely featured nationally and internationally, including in The Washington Post, The New Yorker and CNN.com.
