Interview with Schelly Talalay Dardashti, RootsTech Presenter
- I have an exciting interview today with Schelly Talalay Dardashti, one of
the presenters at the upcoming RootsTech
Schelly focuses on Jewish genealogy as a journalist, blogger, online
instructor and speaker. Her blog Tracing the Tribe: The Jewish Genealogy
Blog <http://tracingthetribe.blogspot.com/> is the top-ranked, award
winning blog in this niche.
Schelly's Session at RootsTech is on Friday Feb. 11 at 9:45 am. The title is
*It's in Our Genes: Revealing History via Technology (A DNA Project Case
Schelly kindly agreed to me interviewing her about this upcoming session.
Her responses not only provide a clear understanding of what her session
will cover, I am sure you will find, as I did, that you have a better

Belarus since the 1700s. However, the family story was that �Talalay was our
name in Spain� and that we were Sephardic Jews. No one in the family
believed it, everyone laughed at the idea, but it was faithfully passed down
to each generation.*
