Jewish DNA Workshop
By working through the DNA results for various San Diego Jewish Genealogical Society members, Kitty Cooper will demonstrate how to use your DNA results to learn more about your ancestry and perhaps find a few cousins to share your interest in genealogy research.

          There may be some time at the end of the program for a few live looks. So be sure to bring your GED match kit numbers.
