A FULL DAY WORKSHOP

ConsanguinitetAre you wondering what genetic genealogy is all about? Or have you already had some DNA tests done for yourself and your relatives but don’t know what the results mean? Do you already use DNA testing effectively but would like to learn more? If any of these questions apply to you, this one-day workshop on genetic genealogy may help you to advance your knowledge of this fascinating and rapidly changing field of research.

The topic of genetic genealogy is broad so our primary focus will be on the main types of DNA testing that are used by genealogists as well as how the results from genetic testing are used in conducting or supporting genealogical research.

The keynote speaker for the workshop is Dr. Maurice Gleeson.
