OCCGS DNA Day 2021 - Featuring Angie Bush, MS Saturday October 2nd Virtual Seminar includes Four Live Presentations with Q&A and a chance for Door Prizes

Join Orange County California Genealogical Society (“OCCGS”) and genealogy enthusiasts from around the world as OCCGS presents our 2nd Annual DNA Day with Angie Bush.

Session Descriptions:

10:15 am - Session 1 Strategically Employing DNA in Your Research

We will discuss the types of genealogical research questions that DNA can be useful for and how to plan your research and DNA testing to bring those brick walls tumbling down.

11:30 am - Session 2 Harnessing the Power of Genetic Networks

Genetic networks are based on shared matches. Shared matches are the most powerful part of our DNA test results. Learn strategies for identifying the genetic networks that will be most useful in answering your research questions.

1:30 pm - Session 3 Using “What Are The Odds”

"What Are The Odds?" is a powerful statistical calculator that can help you determine how you are related to your DNA matches. Learn strategies and techniques for using this tool, and work through a hands-on application.

2:45 pm - Session 4 Case Studies

We will review case studies that employed strategically testing, identifying genetic networks, and using “What Are the Odds” to answer genealogical questions of kinship and identity. This last session is the practical application of everything learned during the day.

About Angie Bush

Angie Bush, MS is the Region 1 Director for the National Genealogical Society. Her day job is as a Genealogist Researcher with Ancestry ProGenealogists in Salt Lake City. Angie has been interested in her genealogy since she was very young. After college, she spent several years working in biotech while continuing to pursue her genealogy hobby.

With the growing popularity and introduction of autosomal DNA testing in 2012, she decided to combine her two loves into one career. Although she spends a lot of time working on recent unknown parentage cases (adoptions, unknown fathers), her favorite type of research to do involves solving decades-old “brick-walls” using a combination of traditional records and genetic evidence. She is a popular speaker and presenter and enjoys attending conferences where she can connect with others who share her passion for genealogy.
