Miami: Jewish female DNA comparison, Oct. 19

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami hosts Dr. Abe Lavender in "Jewish Female DNA: Comparisons of Ashkenazi and Sephardi Women From Recently Released Research Findings," at 10am, Sunday, October 19, at the Greater Miami Jewish Federation.

This mtDNA talk is based on data released only a few months ago that allows for comparisons on the ancestries of these two groups.

For more details (directions, parking, etc.), visit the JGS Miami website.

Head's-up: The group's November 2 meeting will feature Dr. Annette Fromm on "The Genealogy of the Greek Speaking Jews of Ioannina, Greece," on this Romaniot community in northwestern Greece. She has authored "We Are Few: Folklore and Ethnic Identity of the Jewish Community of Ioannina, Greece." Many immigrants from the community settled in New York City and established a synagogue. Fromm has previously spoken on Sephardic naming patterns.
