It’s Elementary My Dear Watson: Solving Mysteries with Genetic Genealogy

January 26, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Humans are 99.9% identical in their genetic makeup, yet, differences in 0.1% of our DNA has helped us answer questions about our recent and deep ancestral origins.  Direct-to-consumer DNA testing provides the toolbox for solving difficult genealogical problems.  This presentation will guide you in selecting the right DNA test, understanding your results in the context of your family tree, and present examples of how those with little to no knowledge of their family history can make big discoveries.

This topic will be presented by Anthony May.   Anthony has been engaged in genealogy research for over a decade. Anthony is a molecular biology and genetics researcher for the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in Newark, New Jersey.  He is a graduate of Temple and Drexel Universities in Philadelphia, where he received his Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, and Master of Science in Molecular Medicine, respectively.  He holds a certificate in Genealogical Research from the Boston University Center for Professional Education.
