Jaclyn Wallach Ancestor Genealogy

I talk a lot about connecting with and working with the ancestors, and many people have come to me confused as to what that actually means—thinking perhaps I’m some sort of genealogist. So I decided to welcome my friend, Jaclyn Wallach, who is a genealogical researcher on the show to really dig into the topic of researching your ancestry and gathering information. In this episode, Jaclyn shares her own deep journey into discovering her own ancestry and claiming her Jewish identity and lineage and then offers three in-depth steps for beginning the journey of discovering and connecting with your own ancestry.

“We are the culmination of other people’s stories, and then we become and create the next part of the story.” -Jaclyn Wallach
