Lessons in Jewish DNA -
One Man's Journey and What he learned on the Journey

Israel Pickholtz, author One Family, One People

Genetic genealogist Israel Pickholtz will discuss how he enjoyed significant successes using DNA to sort out relationships in his family, despite the "Jewish problem" of marriages within the tribe. The lessons he will discuss are relevant to both Jewish and general genealogy.

Israel Pickholtz has lived in Israel since 1973 and now resides in Jerusalem. He has done serious family research for nearly twenty years. His flagship work is the Pikholz Project, a single-surname project to identify and reconnect all Pikholz descendants.

Alongside his work as a professional genealogist, taking clients in Israel and abroad, Pickholtz became heavily involved in genetic genealogy in 2013. He manages test kits of over ninety family members at last count. In August 2015 he published a book "ENDOGAMY: One Family, One People," available at www.endogamy-one-family.com . He blogs at http://allmyforeparents.blogspot.com and receives mail at IsraelP@pikholz.org.
