“The Lost Family”
The Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia will hold an online chat with Libby Copeland to discuss her book, “The Lost Family: How DNA Testing is Upending Who We Are,” on June 28 at 2 p.m. The program is free, but preregistration is required. You can read more about the program and register a jewishgen.org/jgsg/. The book was recently published by Abrams Press and is available at many places.
Family Tree Magazine’s July/August issue lists the top five Genealogy Software Programs: Ancestral Quest (ancquest.com), Family Tree Builder (myheritage.com/family-tree-builder), Family Tree Maker (mackiev.com/ftm), Heredis (heredis.com/en) and RootsMagic (rootsmagic.com). Only two of these, Family Tree Maker and RootsMagic, are well-known. Check them out if you are not using one already, but its always best to go with an established company.
