Bennett Greenspan, president of Family Tree, will share his genetic expertise for novice/experienced genealogists and DNA fans. Through his work, Bennett has discovered a personal connection to New Mexico that should be interesting to all participants, including Hispanics. Participants are encouraged to attend both sessions to build on essential elements of family and historical themes. Test kits by Family Tree will be sold at the session.
EVENT DATE & TIME: February 28, 2016
10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. The morning session introduces exploring (paternal) Y DNA, (maternal) Mt DNA, and (five generations of maternal/paternal) Autosomal Testing with Family Finder to make family connections. Greenspan will share New Mexico Crypto-Jewish DNA information and his New Mexico family links. This session is geared for a beginning as well as more advanced audience setting the stage for the afternoon program.
11:30- 1:30 Lunch: Box Lunch available for purchase
1:30- 2:45p.m. “The DNA of the Jewish People” Many have questioned the origins of the Jewish people. Some say that the Jews are entirely a Semitic people. Others have pushed an idea that the Eastern European Jews are descendants of converted Khazars from the 8th century. Isn’t it time to let the genetic record resolve this?
