Jamboree 2016: DNA Day

 Back to Jamboree! This is my first time to attend the Genetic Genealogy Day the day before the actual conference starts. Having attended webinars and classes on genetic genealogy for the past few years, I thought I was ready to delve in a little deeper into this pool of knowledge by some of the best in the field. And I was… and learned a lot!

Below are the classes I took.

 Schedule for DNA Day: Thursday, 1 June 2016

·        “How to Do a DNA Triangulation” - Kitty Munson Cooper.
·        “NextGen Y-SNP DNA Testing Can Illuminate Your Paternal Line” - David Dowell, PhD.
·        “DNA for Genealogists: Breaking Brick Walls” - Kitty Munson Cooper.
·        Luncheon: “The Peopling of Europe” – Michael F. Hammer. PhD.
·        “The Genetic Genealogist as Citizen Scientist” - Blaine T. Bettinger, PhD, JD.
·        “Using Autosomal DNA to Solve a Family Mystery” - Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG®, CGL®, FASG, FUGA, FNGS.
·        “Autosomal DNA: Considerations for Endogamous Populations” - Paul Alan Woodbury.
