Schelly Talalay Dardashti
of Tracing the Tribe, joins Myrt to discuss Jewish genealogy, including pilot projects are being undertaken to reconstruct genealogically entire villages decimated in the Holocaust. Schelly, a Native New Yorker who has also lived in such places as Teheran, Iran (for 8 years, pre-Revolution) and now lives in Tel Aviv.

A journalist, Schelly has focused on genealogy since 1999, and wrote the "It's All Relative" Jewish genealogy column for the Jerusalem Post 1999-2005. She has written for the JTA, The Forward, Reform Judaism, Outlook, Avotaynu and other genealogy newsletters, journals and US newspapers. She also speaks internationally for Jewish genealogy societies and general and Jewish genealogy conferences.

Tracing the Tribe , under the JTA umbrella, went live in time for the (July 2006, NY) 26th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy and she blogged from there for the first time. Blogging has been an interesting learning curve for her as far as technology goes as she is NOT a techie, but is slowly learning about widgets and such. As the only focused Jewish genealogy blog, Tracing the Tribe provides information on specialized new resources, technology, publications, conferences and personalities and readers come from around the world. Schelly is a member of the American Jewish Press Association and the Association of Professional Genealogists.
