Switched at Birth: Unraveling a Century-Old Mystery with DNA

Saturday, Sept. 16 at 2 p.m.

Presenter:  Alice Collins Plebuch

From the author...

"[A few] years ago I blithely took a DNA test at AncestryDNA.  At the time, the fact that it was in beta, somewhat alleviated my concern when I first saw my results.  I was three quarters Irish with the remainder being a English/Scottish mix, but the test claimed I was half Jewish.  It was as if half my ancestry was wrong. The results had to be wrong! I was expecting to see Mc and Mac relatives, but the names were overwhelming Eastern European, Russian, and Jewish. I can assure you, they weren't any of my relatives, or were they?"
