Event description

Description

The use of Investigative Genetic Genealogy (IGG) has revolutionized law enforcement’s ability to solve cases. IGG utilizes the same type of DNA testing as the direct to consumer DNA companies to identify relatives of unknown suspects that have left DNA at a crime scene and have no match in the CODIS database. IGG can also be used to identify human remains. This course covers the basics of conducting genealogical research utilizing both present day and historical research tools to build family trees. Participants will learn how to narrow down a suspect’s location in the family tree and the legal aspects of utilizing IGG. A discussion of the pitfalls and challenges investigators face when using IGG will be covered along with a best practices model to follow when conducting an IGG investigation.
