The cultural phenomenon of home DNA testing

Cover of the book The Lost Family.Sunday, December 12 at 1 pm
Jewish Genealogy Society of CNY
This Zoom presentation by Libby Copeland will explore the extraordinary cultural phenomenon of home DNA testing, which is redefining family history. It will draw on Copeland’s years of research for her new book The Lost Family: How DNA Testing is Upending Who We Are (Abrams, 2020), which The Wall Street Journal calls “a fascinating account of lives dramatically affected by genetic sleuthing.” With more than 37 million people having been tested, a tipping point has been reached. Virtually all Americans are affected whether they have been tested or not, and millions have been impacted by significant revelations in their immediate families. The presentation will discuss the implications of home DNA testing for Jewish genealogy, as well as the unique challenges of genetic genealogy for Ashkenazim.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
