DNA and Genealogy
Presenter: Colleen Fitzpatrick
Date: Tuesday, March 18, 2014
Time: 7:00 PM CST
Webinar Description: DNA is not as difficult to understand as you might think! Whether you are having trouble spelling DNA or you are an old hand at genetic genealogy, this talk is for you! Understanding your DNA results, connecting with long lost cousins, and gaining insight into family history through DNA has become easier than ever. And what if your DNA is different from the rest of the members of your family? Should you hide under the bed? Refuse all incoming phone calls? No! You have a terrific opportunity to discover the interesting family history if your DNA doesn't match anyone else's. In this talk, you will learn the basics of DNA, how to ‘do’ genetic genealogy, and what you can derive from your DNA results. Colleen explains how DNA can be combined with paper genealogy to provide a more powerful toolbox for solving genealogical mysteries. Colleen also gives success stories in tracing otherwise lost family history-unexpectedly connecting a group to a geographical region and to historical evebnts occurring there. This talk on DNA is very different from others you might have heard. No matter what level of understanding you have about genetic genealogy, this talk is for you!
