Series: Jewish Enrichment
Date: September 11, 2019
Location: Washington Hebrew Congregation, Washington, DC
Nadine Epstein shares her efforts to discover her family that had vanished over many generations. She utilized genealogical sleuthing, DNA and genetic testing, as well as “cousin-fishing” to reassemble her family tree. Her adventures took her to shtetls and cities in Eastern Europe and introduced her to an online universe of fellow travelers and close relatives, finally curing what she calls her chronic “familial loneliness syndrome.” Epstein has been writing about Jewish genealogy since the 1990’s.
This program is joyously sponsored by Andrew Ammerman in loving memory of Jodie and Max Ammerman and Stephen C. Ammerman.
