This presentation will focus on the rich and dynamic history of New England’s Jewish population. Our presenter, Dr. Adina Newman, will provide an outline of key events and trends specific to New England’s Jewish population from the colonial period through the present. We will also share resources and repositories for people interested in conducting Jewish genealogical research in the New England states.
Dr. Adina Newman specializes in Jewish genetic genealogy. She volunteers as a moderator for a popular Jewish DNA group on Facebook and is regularly called on in other genetic genealogy forums when questions arise. Her comfort with social media platforms has prompted her to serve as Social Media Coordinator for the NextGen Genealogy Network. A trained educator, Dr. Adina lectures on various genealogical topics related to Jewish genealogy, DNA, New England, and more. She is also a 2020 AncestryProGenealogists Scholarship winner and participant and co-chat leader in ProGen 50.
