Colorado: Jewish DNA program, Sept. 8

Denver readers will have an opportunity to learn about Jewish genetic genealogy with "What I learned from my Jewish DNA," by area ENT specialist Dr. Alan Lipkin, who will discuss the basics, his own experience with DNA analysis and how it confirmed his family history.

Genetic genealogy - the use of DNA analysis to trace family and ethnic background - has been a great advance to people trying to trace their heritage. Recent discoveries of specific markers associated with Jewish ancestry and the ancient Jewish priesthood have been utilized to correlate personal history, family history and even biblical legends. It is now possible for any person to obtain information about his or her family history and locate lost relatives.
The free program is open to the public and will begin at 6.30pm, Monday, September 8, at Temple Sinai, at the first session of the congregation's Adult Education series.
