This talk is about how I traced my Nunes Vaz family back to the 17th century Italy and how I've expanded that research with DNA. The Nunes Vaz family spread all over the Western Sephardic World, including the communities in Amsterdam, Livorno, Jamaica, London, Suriname, and many others. 

Jarrett Ross began researching his own family history in 2009 while finishing his undergraduate degree. Since then he has built his own personal tree with over 7000 people, successfully connected with thousands of relatives all over the World, and has helped build hundreds of trees for people of varying ancestral backgrounds. Jarrett has found a specialty in Genetic Genealogy and Sephardic Jewish research, with an emphasis on the Dutch Sephardim. He also specializes in Jewish Agricultural Societies of Southern New Jersey, Ashkenazi Jews, Jews in America, and Jews in the UK. Jarrett writes a blog called "Sephardic Genealogy", which focuses on his Sephardic genealogy research. He also has a vlog called "GeneaVlogger" where Jarrett talks about his research, gives genealogy tips, interviews other genealogists, and shows different aspects of working in genealogy. Jarrett currently works as Lead Forensic Genealogist at DNA Labs International, is a volunteer curator on, is a Board Member of the Alliance Colony Foundation, serves as the Vice President of the Triangle Jewish Genealogical Society, and serves as chair on the Board of Directors for the IAJGS.
