Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland


Sunday March 26, 2017
Save the date for our next meeting!
Please join us on Sunday, March 26, 2017, at 1:30 p.m., at the Pikesville Library’s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville, for Rachel's Unkefer's talk "Behind the Brick Wall: Solving Research Problems with DNA Testing."

Many genealogists are disappointed in the outcome when they spend money with testing companies without a concrete goal or question in mind. Successful testing begins with posing questions and then selecting the correct tests and testers to answer those questions. Learn how to set testing goals and how to navigate the testing and analysis processes.

Rachel Unkefer, based in Charlottesville, VA, has been a genealogist for more than 30 years and a genetic genealogist for nearly 10 years. She has published several articles in "Avotaynu: The International Review of Jewish Genealogy" and has spoken on genetic genealogy at international genealogical conferences.
