“I am so pleased to be able to say that the support for the inaugural independent genetic genealogy conference has exceeded my most ambitious aspirations. My appreciation goes out to Professor Gates, Dr. Wells and all of our wonderful speakers for graciously and enthusiastically accepting my invitation to be part of this groundbreaking event. (You can register here.) The press release announcing the exciting addition of Professor Gates to our schedule follows:
“FAMILY HISTORY AND DNA: GENETIC GENEALOGY IN 2013”
TO FEATURE SPENCER WELLS, PH.D. AND HENRY LOUIS GATES., JR., PH.D.
It’s rare that a new type of event is introduced to the genealogical community. The Southern California Genealogical Society and the International Society of Genetic Genealogy are proud to announce such an event.
“Family History and DNA: Genetic Genealogy in 2013” is a one-day conference designed to fully explore the application of genetic genealogy in researching family history. It will be held Thursday, June 6, 2013, at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport, Burbank, California. Registrations are open now and an early-bird registration discount is in place through April 30.
“We are so excited that this new conference will break new ground in genetic genealogy gatherings,” said SCGS president Alice Fairhurst, who helped to found the society’s DNA interest group and has been actively applying DNA in her own genealogy research. “Family History and DNA” differs from other DNA events in several ways.
First, speakers are among the most highly respected and knowledgeable professionals in the DNA and genetic genealogy universe.“
