Speaking on Genetic Genealogy next week in Modi'in

For those in Israel, you are invited to come to a lecture I am giving in Modi'in next week (in English) on June 20 at 7:15pm on the use of DNA for genealogy. This will be at the June meeting of the Israel Genealogical Society (IGS) in Modi'in, and will take place at 51 Yigal Yadin St., in the meeting room at on the first floor (across from the elevators) in what is one of the Dimri Towers buildings. For those who don't know Modi'in, it is right across the street from the train station (and not far from the mall) in the center of town.

I will be giving an introductory (and practical) lecture on the use of DNA for genealogy (similar to the lecture I gave in Ra'anana last month), followed by Richard Gussow, who will be furthering the theme by discussing the topic:

"The WIRTH Group – or how a “pureblood” Ashkenazi discovered his Sephardic roots – and more!"

It promises to be a very interesting discussion and I welcome everyone to come, listen and ask questions.

As with all meetings in Modi'in of the Israel Genealogical Society, the first meeting is free for interested people, so even if you're not a member of IGS you can attend this lecture for free. Of course, if you're interested in joining IGS, we'll have membership forms available (and you can take advantage of the current membership discount for the rest of the year - 100nis instead of the normal 180nis).

If you think you're going to be coming, please send me an e-mail to let me know.
