Do you have an ancestor who just refuses to be found? DNA testing can be a very powerful tool to help fill in the blanks in your family tree. But how helpful can it really be when you know absolutely nothing about the person you are trying to find? As it turns out, with the right techniques and a careful search, your DNA might be able to tell you more than you think.”

FREE Webinar - Circles or Triangles? What Shape is Your DNA? presented by Diahan Southard - Wednesday, June 29th, 1:00 pm Central - “As we march forward into another year of genetic genealogy much is being discovered about the ways in which we can analyze our autosomal DNA data. There is a hot debate over two seemingly competing ideas: the DNA Circle, or the Triangulation method. The DNA Circle was pioneered by AncestryDNA and relies on small shared segments and complete family trees. The Triangulation method requires a chromosome browser and detailed calculations of shared amounts of DNA. We will cover questions like, Which is the best route to take? Do I need a chromosome browser? How can I use these methods in my own genealogy? Autosomal DNA is an ever changing field, this lecture will cover the latest methods of analysis and interpretation for the non-scientist genetic genealogist.” Click here to register - via Legacy Family Tree Webinars

  • FREE WEBINAR Weaving DNA Test Results into a Proof Argument presented by Karen Stanbary, CG – Tuesday, February 21st, 7:00pm Central – “This lecture illustrates how to integrate each element of the Genealogical Proof Standard in a proof argument that relies heavily on autosomal DNA test results to answer a relationship research question. The examples are drawn from “Rafael Arriaga, A Mexican Father in Michigan: Autosomal DNA Helps Identify Paternity.” National Genealogical Society Quarterly (June 2016).” Click here to register – via Legacy Family Tree Webinars and Board for Certification of Genealogists

Genealogy Blogging Beat – Tuesday, 21 February 2017

On 21 February 1965, just as he began a speech to his newly formed Organization of Afro-American Unity, black activist leader Malcolm X was gunned down by several men standing among the 400-plus crowd in the Audubon Ballroom at Harlem, New York City. The assassination occurred barely a week after Malcolm X’s Queens home was fire-bombed. Three men were convicted of the murder in 1966 and sentenced to life in prison (two were released in the 1980s and the third won parole in 2010).
