    Mark Bauman, retired professor of history at Atlanta Metropolitan College, will discuss the origins of Reform in Charleston and especially Baltimore and how Jews from these cities took Reform across the country as they moved westward.

    Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia Meeting

    An acclaimed new book by award-winning journalist Libby Copeland explores the rapidly evolving phenomenon of home DNA testing through her lens as an Ashkenazi Jew and that of the protagonist, Alice Collins Plebuch, whose parents are Irish American Catholics but whose DNA test indicates lots of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. In so doing, The Lost Family: How DNA Testing Is Upending Who We Are (Abrams, 2020) illuminates how we think about family, heritage, and ourselves.
