Humans are 99.9% identical in their genetic makeup, yet, differences in 0.1% of our DNA has helped us answer questions about our recent and deep ancestral origins. Direct-to-consumer DNA testing provides the toolbox for solving difficult genealogical problems. This presentation will guide you in selecting the right DNA test, understanding your results in the context of your family tree, and present examples of how those with little to no knowledge of their family history can make big discoveries.
Anthony May has been engaged in genealogy research for over a decade. He is a molecular biology and genetics researcher for the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in Newark.
