Blaine Bettinger in Toronto this April

“The Genetic Genealogist” is coming to town! Toronto Branch is delighted to present two days of learning with the internationally renowned Blaine Bettinger in early April 2018.

On the afternoon of Friday April 6, Blaine will deliver two back-to-back lectures aimed at experienced genetic genealogists: Advanced Third-Party Tools and Introduction to Visual Phasing.

And on Saturday April 7, Blaine will lead a full-day workshop for active genetic genealogists who are at the intermediate level. Discover how to interpret and analyse your genetic matches to further your family history research. This workshop, called The Art of Genetic Genealogy Investigation with Blaine Bettinger, will include four one-hour lecture sessions plus a question-and-answer period. To get the most out of this event, participants should have already done an autosomal DNA test, explored the tools of their testing company and loaded their data on GEDmatch.

Both the Friday lectures and the Saturday workshop will take place at Lansing United Church, near Sheppard and Yonge in North York. Registration is open now for both events, and spaces are filling up quickly. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to deepen your understanding of genetic genealogy and how it can help you break down brick walls!
