DNA + Paper Trail = Case Solved!  (Meetings)
6:45 pm to 9:00 pm

Presented by Allison Ryall

Autosomal DNA is a common type of genetic testing that many TV commercials advertise, but it cannot stand alone and must be part of a traditional genealogy research in order to solve many brick-wall problems. Come learn how autosomal DNA (atDNA) testing combined with extensive paper research helped to discover the birth parents of an African-American woman who was adopted in Washington, PA, in the 1920s.

Who's on First? Merging and Separating Identities in Family History Research  (Meetings)
6:45 pm to 9:00 pm
LaRoche College
Presented by Jay Fonkert
 
Who's on First? Merging and Separating Identities in Family History Research
Merging or separating identities is a core genealogical problem. Sometimes we find a man/woman of the same name in several different places over time. Other times, we find two easily confounded people in the same place and time. A series of short case studies illustrate the importance of certain identity.
