 A Day with the Genetic Genealogist

Blaine Bettinger

March  3, 2018

9:00am - 4:00pm

 

Blaine Bettinger’s blog, The Genetic Genealogist was launched on February 12, 2007 as one of the very first blogs to examine the intersection of traditional genealogical techniques and modern genetic research, more commonly known as “genetic genealogy.” Genetic genealogists use genetics to learn more about their ancestry, including their ancient roots, and the relatedness of individuals. This relatively new technology represents a powerful new technology for the genealogist’s toolbox. 

 

The seminar is being held in the ADA accessible, Goldman Theater at the David Brower Center in downtown Berkeley.  This beautifully finished theater features natural bamboo walls and plush raised theatrical seating.  Key features include a hi-definition digital video and custom designed sound reinforcement by Meyer Sound.

 

It’s also convenient: In addition to an onsite public parking garage, the Brower Center is one block from the Downtown Berkeley BART station and multiple bus lines. 

 

Included with your admission are a wonderful lunch and assorted beverages available throughout the day.

 

Doors open at 9:00am for registration.  Lectures begining 9:30am will  include:

1. Using Y-DNA and mtDNA to Explore Your Ancestry 

2. Introduction to Autosomal DNA 

3. Getting the Most Out of Your AncestryDNA Matches 

4. Using Third-Party Tools.

 


 Blaine Bettinger, Ph.D., J.D., is an intellectual property attorney by day and a genetic genealogist by night. He is the author of the long-running blog The Genetic Genealogist, www.TheGeneticGenealogist.com.
