If your organization needs a genealogy speaker with a focus on DNA testing, please contact me. My presentations are perfect for beginner and intermediate audiences. I make DNA testing concepts and tools understandable without getting bogged down in the science behind them.
A single presentation followed by a free-ranging Question & Answer session can fit a 60- to 90-minute timeframe.
Genetic Genealogy Workshops
These longer events can cover a half day (two presentations plus break and Q&A) or a full day (four presentations with several breaks and two Q&A sessions).
When travel costs are prohibitive, I can work with your staff to do an online presentation over the Internet.
I offer four different but complimentary presentations:
1. Finding Family with DNA Testing
Hear my groundbreaking DNA story and learn the latest methods for finding previously unknown relatives.
2. Introduction to Genetic Genealogy
Get to know all the DNA test types and hear insider’s tips on how to use these tests most effectively.
3. Understanding the Ethnic Ancestry in Your DNA Test
Learn why ethnicity results don’t always match expectations and see actual ethnicity reports from all the major DNA tests.
4. Y-Chromosome Insights & Strategies*
See how Y-DNA testing of suitable males can break through genealogical brick walls in your paternal lines.
*Only included in a full-day workshop.
For a list of my past and future speaking engagements since 2013 see the News & Events page of my website.
For downloadable images of me and my books for promotional purposes see the Images page.
Slides for my presentations are on my Mac laptop. The sponsoring organization needs to provide a digital projector and screen.
Since I am tall, I prefer a podium for positioning my laptop within easy reach.
For larger groups a microphone should also be available.
