Sat., July 30, 2016 – What is New in Ancestral Origin Predictions? Direct-to-consumer DNA tests often include “ethnic” estimates. However, these results often differ between the test companies. First degree relatives in a single family often get different predictions from the same company. Kathy Johnston will explore these ancestral origin predictions from the perspective of a genealogist. She will demonstrate what is available at each of the three main DNA companies used by genealogists, 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and Family Tree DNA.
Presenter: Kathy Johnston is a retired dermatologist who has been actively researching her family
tree for over 25 years. She is one of the administrators for the SCGS DNA Interest Group (DIG) and
has been involved in genetic genealogy research for 12 years.
