Al Gershman



Albert is a 1st generation American. His parents came from the Ukraine and Belarus but that is a very short window. Just what came before that?
DNA has opened a new world of discovery for both casual and seasoned family researchers. Albert will take us through the basics of the 4 types of DNA and explain what can be learned beyond being so many percent this or that ethnicity. Through his own personal DNA results and other research examples, he will give us an insight of what your own results can provide by proving or disproving family relationships. Albert will also share what he has discovered about hid ancient ethnicity and makeup.
