Interpreting Your Jewish DNA Test Results

Hosted By: The Center for Jewish History

DNA has the potential to be an essential and revolutionary genealogical tool, especially for Jewish testers facing roadblocks in their paper trails, including those affected by the Holocaust. The Center for Jewish History has recently launched the DNA Reunion Project, which provides free commercial DNA testing to Holocaust survivors and their children. If you’ve just taken a DNA test or are considering it, project co-founders Dr. Adina Newman and Jennifer Mendelsohn will walk you through how to decipher your results without getting tripped up by common mistakes. (Why does it say I have so many matches? What do all the numbers mean? Which of these people should I reach out to?) You’ll learn techniques that will help you work effectively with DNA to expand your family tree — and connect with new relatives.
