About The Event
The overwhelming majority of Jews living today can trace their roots back to the Middle East with a little DNA testing. Bennett Greenspan will discuss what DNA testing has taught us about Jewish roots. He will share the latest research by comparing Jewish DNA to various ethnic groups. Additionally, Bennett will share his expertise about how to use DNA to determine your ancestral Jewish roots, settle family disputes and connect to long-lost relatives.
Mr. Greenspan is an entrepreneur and life-long genealogy enthusiast. In 1999, he founded Family Tree DNA, a company dedicated to using genetics for personal ancestry research. Family Tree DNA was the first company in the world to develop DNA testing for ancestry and genealogical purposes as a commercial application. The Y chromosome test, the companies original product, started the Direct To Consumer genetics testing revolution.
