'My Jewish Roots' workshop tour continues


Diahan Southard

Start on a family discovery journey with the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando (JGSGO) as it continues "My Jewish Roots" a JGSGO Workshop Roadshow.

There are eight remaining free workshops coming to locations throughout the Orlando metro area and over the Internet. Each participant's family discovery journey will include directed hands-on labs that will lead to extending their family tree-adding newly discovered ancestors and living cousins.

The third in the series of workshops held by the JGSGO, "Find DNA Ancestors and Cousins," will be held Thursday, Nov. 10 from 7 till 9 p.m. at UCF Hillel. The featured speaker will be genetic genealogist Diahan Southard, who has been in the field for 16 years. She will take the mystery out of DNA and provide the direction to accomplish your genealogy goals.

JGSGO President Jerry Kurland noted, "Two participants in our first workshop made major discoveries. If you have had any interest in finding your roots, this workshop series will bring you success." 

The workshop is free and open to the public. Please bring your own laptop to participate in the lab portion. It is also possible to attend live via the Internet.

Pre-registration is required to participate either in-person or online: http://www.jgsgo.org/MyJewishRoots.
