Speaking: The ABCs of DNA in Ra’anana, Israel on May 11

For those of you in Israel, I will be speaking on May 11th at the Ra’anana (English-speaking) branch of the Israel Genealogical Society (IGS) on the topic:

The ABCs of DNA: An introduction to using DNA tests and their benefits for genealogical research

This will be a basic overview of how DNA testing can be used to supplement your existing genealogical research. I will start with a short overview of the science involved, then discuss the three main types of tests available, Y-DNA, mtDNA and Autosomal DNA tests. If you’re interested in finding out how these tests work, and how you can apply the results to your genealogy research, this will be a good way to learn more about the topic.

The lecture begins at 7:15pm at Beit Fisher, 5 Klausner Street in Ra’anana. Admission is free to IGS members, 20nis for non-members.
