Lessons in Jewish DNA: Inspiration From One Man’s Successes, Israel Pickholtz

January 31, 2016 $0.00 - $5.00 0

DNA results are especially complicated for Jews who have married “within the tribe” for hundreds of years, a practice known as endogamy. Since every family is different, professional genealogist and author Israel Pickholtz will describe how he dealt with endogamy in his own family and identify general lessons for all DNA research. His goal is to inspire all to say, “I can do this!” Following the talk, copies of his new book, Endogamy: One Family, One People (July 2015) will be available for purchase and signing.

Israel Pickholtz, a native of Pittsburgh, has lived in Israel since 1973. He has been working on his families’ genealogies since 1994. His flagship work is the Pikholz Project that aims to identify and reconnect all Pikholz descendants. Pickholtz is a member of the Israel Genealogical Society and the Association of Professional Genealogists. He has lectured at IAJGS conferences and has been widely published in many genealogy publications. For more information go to jgsgb.org.
