Finding Mona: An Autosomal DNA Detective Story
Speaker: Megan Lee

A gift of heritage; the adoptee solves her mother’s adoption and presents her with the results. This lecture balances methodologies, tools, and techniques used to solve adoptions and other challenging
brick walls with the complex and emotional components of adoption integration included. 

Megan Lee learned DNA through her adoption. She started DNA courses in 2013 without the constraints of a tree or expected results. She let the inheritance patterns of the DNA teach her the science. Now she’s addicted to DNA and even solved her double adoption! Megan has earned an Advanced Genetic Genealogy Certificate from GRIP, a Genetic Genealogy Certificate from Excelsior College, a Certificate in Genealogy from Boston University, and ProGen.
