Jewish Genealogy for the Non-Jew: History, Migration, DNA - free webinar by Schelly Talalay Dardashti now online for limited time

2018-08-01-image500blog

The recording of today's MyHeritage webinar, "Jewish Genealogy for the Non-Jew: History, Migration, DNA” by Schelly Talalay Dardashti is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

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.
