Schelly Talalay Dardashti
The IberianAshkenaz DNA Project was organized to help those Ashkenazi families with a story of Sephardic origin. Both administrators, Schelly Talalay Dardashti and Judy Simon, had these stories. Hundreds of people have tested and belong to this project. The presentation will offer a tantalizing look at what has been confirmed since the project's inception. It offers clues for Ashkenazim, Mizrahim and Sephardim, for crypto-Jews in the Southwest US, and for many other groups. Results show that a broader mindset of who we really are is required these days. Results and connections will be detailed.
