"Cracking the Code: DNA Testing Myths and Reality "
The use of DNA testing in genealogy, or genetic genealogy, is a rapidly evolving field. Tests can cost a substantial amount of money. The talk is aimed at genealogists who want to know what DNA testing is all about and how it can be used.
Greg Liverman, Ph.D., began tracing his family history in the 1990s with an old Macintosh and Family Tree Maker. He lives in Florissant, Colorado and has researched family history in libraries, cemeteries, and records offices in seven states and also become adept at using online resources for research. In 2013 he added DNA testing to his brick wall demolition toolkit. He developed “Cracking the Code” to answer frequently asked questions by many genealogists such as “What is this DNA testing all about and why should I care?”
