DNA has opened new frontiers in genealogy, but it can present complications for genealogists with Ashkenazi Jewish heritage.Endogamy—the term for marriages within a social group—can greatly complicate DNA results, increasing the number of “matches” and making it hard to tell who is your potential relative and who simply shares a lot of DNA with you.
