Frossard Auditorium

Join us for an all-day workshop with Blaine Bettinger, DNA expert and genetic genealogist. Learn how DNA tests are used to solve research problems and how to use third-party tools to learn more.

Workshop participants will learn how the Y-DNA and mtDNA tests can help break through brick walls and identify your close and distant relatives and explore your ancient history; how autosomal DNA tests reveal ethnicity estimates and can connect you with long-lost cousins; how to use autosomal DNA to attack and potentially solve mysteries and brick walls for ancestors who lived in the 1800s and beyond; and how to use third-party tools, such as GEDmatch and DNAPainter, to analyze your autosomal DNA and learn even more about your genomic heritage.
