    Time: 2:00 PM
    Place: Mid-Island Y-JCC 45 Manetto Hill Road Plainview, New York

    Topic: DNA for Adoptees or How Instead of a Bicycle, I Got a Sister for My Birthday

    Guest Speaker: Chuck Weinstein

    Adopted at birth, Chuck found much more than he expected when he turned to DNA testing to connect with his biological family. The surprises he found culminated in meeting a previously unknown half sister and a cousin with whom he attended high school.

    Chuck Weinstein has been researching his family for over 25 years. A past president of JGSLI, Chuck also served as co-chair of the 36th IAJGS International Conference in Seattle in 2016. He is currently on the board of JewishGen's Ukraine Special Interest Group. He has conducted extensive research on the Holocaust, Eastern European history and genealogy. He is currently writing a book on the impact of the Holocaust on a small town in Moravia.

    Our "Mavens" are available at 1:30 PM to take your genealogy questions.

    Admission is free and all are welcome.
