DNA Interest Group Meeting
Learn from 4 case studies how DNA was used to overcome a brick wall that stood since the 1950s using Y-DNA, solved the mystery of the mother of two sisters using mtDNA, a surprise revealing step-grandpa was really dad using autosomal DNA, and lastly, one that solved a case of an unknown father by using the X match. Also included is 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.
Presenter: Cheri Mello has been active in genealogy for more than 25 years and regularly gives presentations about the use of DNA. She runs five DNA projects and manages mailing lists involving Portuguese-Azorean genealogy.
