Linking family relationships dates back to the recording of the Table of Nations and other genealogies found in the Book of Genesis. Join professional genealogist Ellen Kowitt for an exploration of values and traditions rooted in Judaism that might frame a family history project, establish identity as a group, build community, link Cohanim descent, document the Holocaust and pogroms, or identify genetic disease clusters.

Presented by: Ellen Kowitt
