Genetic genealogy has become a major component of genealogical research, confirming hundreds of years of documentation and breaking down brick walls. Yet confirming new family and expanding one’s tree using Jewish Genetic Genealogy is a difficult task filled with many pitfalls. Many aren’t even sure where to begin when they first look at their DNA matches but success is still possible. This presentation will explore multiple case studies by Jarrett Ross in researching his own family history using genetic genealogy. Using different types of DNA tests and multiple techniques to identify significant DNA matches Jarrett was able to expand multiple branches of his tree and find lost cousins, for both his Ashkenazi and Sephardi ancestry. Come learn all the techniques used as Jarrett breaks down the process of each case study and what methods found success in his research.
