Next Tuesday is our next UJGS meeting. Because of construction on the first floor of the Family History Library, we will be meeting in the classroom on the B-2 level, the British floor. Our meeting will begin at 6:30pm.
Our speaker will be Kathy Kirkpatrick, a Utah-based genealogist, originally from Southern California, who specializes in Italian research. She will be presenting Proving the Jewish Heritage of a Catholic Sicilian Family: following a DNA test showing the 12 marker Cohen modal haplotype, she researched a family back to 1820, then to 1638, and then found baptisms in 1492, the year of the Expulsion of Jews from Sicily. Was the family originally Jewish? Come hear the presentation to find out what she learned.
This lecture was previously presented at the IAJGS Conference in Seattle last month. We are honored to have Kathy bringing this presentation to our society.
See you there.
