Schelly Talalay Dardashti is joining us all the way from Israel. Her talk is entitled -
It’s In Our Genes: A DNA Project Case Study
Session 1B, 10.30-11.30
This session (by project co-founder/co-administrator) presents the structure of creating and organizing any DNA project, using an established project as a case study. It covers setting project goals and joining criteria; how to publicize the project; persuading participants to join; results and surprises, advertising results and communicating with participants.
The program focuses on IberianAshkenaz DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA.com as a case study, but is equally applicable to a DNA project covering any ethnicity. This project attempts to proves the family stories of some Eastern European Ashkenazi Jews that their families were of Sephardic origin (with roots in Spain or Portugal).
