Genealogical DNA Testing this Weekend

Join us this coming Sunday November 13 for a fascinating presentation by Ric Morgan on DNA testing for genealogy. The program is being put on by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado (JGSCO), and is open to the public. The program takes place in Denver at the Loup Jewish Community Center at 350 South Dahlia Street from 10:00 am to noon.

DNA is quickly becoming an important part of genealogy research, and new genealogy DNA tests have become useful for determining ancestry. Each of us inherits a unique genetic code from our parents. This creates a molecular link between generations which reaches far back in time and can be of great help in reconstructing our family histories.

This session will focus on the basics of genealogy DNA testing and will discuss the following questions:
* What is genealogy DNA testing, and how does it work?
* Can I really find my ancestors using genealogy DNA testing?
* How can genealogy DNA testing prove or disprove my family tree research?

Following this program presentation, there will be a mentoring session which is open to JGSCO members only. If you’d like to attend and are not yet a member, you can join on-site for $30 for individuals ($40 for families).

We hope to see you there!

“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.

  1. Why not start a similar group in New Jersey and at the end of the question and answer period – we can begin DNA Testing so that families can get answers about their Ancestry?
