Tracing Our Ancestral European Roots—A Panel Discussion

Five members of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland share their journeys to ancestral villages in Europe in conjunction with last year’s IAJGS Conference in Warsaw. Helen and Paul Wolf, Muriel Weber ,Anne Lukas, and Henny Lukas Fierman have all gone to great lengths to trace their families' ancestral roots and identify unknown, missing and lost relatives over many years, if not decades.

Join us on Wednesday, April 3 as they reveal the twists and turns in the road that led to some amazing discoveries—not to mention a few surprises.

NOTE the date, time and location as we return to our evening meeting schedule.

How Jewish Ancestry Impacts Genetics

Sarah Mazzola and Megan Quinlan, two board-certified genetic counselors with the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Personalized Genetic Healthcare will provide a general overview of common conditions in individuals with Jewish ancestry such as Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Syndrome due to BRCA mutations. They will also provide helpful information for those who are considering meeting with a genetic counselor, and what to expect from genetic testing.

Sarah Mazzola, MS, LGC, completed her Master of Science degree in genetic counseling at the University of Michigan and joined Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Personalized Genetic Healthcare as a General Genetic Counselor in 2018. Her presentation will focus on non-cancer related inheritable disorders such as Gaucher, and also touch on prenatal risk screening.

Megan Quinlan, MS, LGC, completed her Master of Science degree in genetic counseling at the University of Cincinnati and joined Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Personalized Genetic Healthcare as a Cancer Genetic Counselor in 2018. Quinlan will share information related to inherited cancer risk in the Eastern European Jewish population.
