Lara Diamond – DNA Successes in (and Despite) Endogamy

May 5, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Genetic genealogy is particularly daunting for endogamous populations including Ashkenazi Jews and other groups who have married among themselves for generations.  Trying to identify actual relatives among the mass of distantly-related DNA matches can be frustrating.  Drawing on case studies, Lara Diamond will explain how you can succeed in spite of these obstacles.   Lara Diamond’s work has helped reunify family branches thought to have been killed in the Holocaust.

Lara DiamondLara Diamond has researched her roots in Eastern Europe using records from the Russian and Austro-Hungarian Empires. She is president of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland, has leading roles in JewishGen’s Subcarpathian and Ukraine SIG groups, and runs projects collecting documentation from multiple towns.  Her blog is http://larasgenealogy.blogspot.com.
