WE WILL BE LEARNING ALL WE CAN DURING OUR “DAY OF DNA” WITH BLAINE T. BETTINGER; 

THE GENETIC GENEALOGIST

Check out his website at:  http://thegeneticgenealogist.com/

The four topics, our really cool speaker will be presenting are:

 

  1. Genetic Genealogy Education – You’ve received your DNA test results, but you have no idea what they mean. Where do you go for more information? How do you educate yourself about genetic genealogy?
  2. Using Autosomal DNA for 18th and 19th Century Mysteries –  Even though our 18th and 19th century ancestors have been dead for decades, their DNA still survives in their descendants. Learn how to use autosomal DNA to attack and potentially solve genealogical mysteries and brick walls for ancestors who were born or lived in the 1800’s, 1700’s, and beyond. Together we’ll also examine some of the ways that leaders in the field have attacked or solved their 18th and 19th century mysteries using autosomal DNA.
  3. Using Third-Party Tools to Analyze Your Autosomal DNA –  Although DNA testing companies provide their own analysis of test results, there are third-party tools that allow test-takers to learn even more about their genomic heritage, including admixture calculators and the identification of genetic cousins.  Together we’ll explore some of these tools and learn how to separate the wheat from the chaff.
  4. Phasing and Mapping Your DNA – “Phasing” is the process of identifying what DNA you inherited from your mother, and what DNA you inherited from your father.  Learn how to phase your DNA results, and how you can use that phased DNA to “map” segments of your DNA to specific ancestors.  Genealogists are using this process to map significant portions of their genome to their genealogical family tree.
