About the speaker

The topics are:

Session 1: Learn from 4 case studies how DNA was used to overcome a brick wall that stood since the 1950s, a second that solved the mystery of the parent of two sisters, a third that revealed step-grandpa was really dad, and finally, a case of an unknown father. 

Session 2: An overview of the 4 types of DNA used in genealogy: Y-DNA, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA),  autosomal DNA (Family Finder) and X Match and how to decode the confusing terms of DNA and be successful in utilizing your DNA.
