Webinar on DNA as Evidence

Presenter: Karen Stanbary

Presenter: Karen Stanbary

There is a great DNA related webinar coming up on Wednesday 22nd Feb at 9am AWST/12 noon AEDT on Legacy Family Tree Webinars, sponsored by the Board of Certification of Genealogists (BCG). The topic is “Weaving DNA test results into a proof argument.”

This lecture illustrates how to integrate each element of the Genealogical Proof Standard in a proof argument that relies heavily on autosomal DNA test results to answer a relationship research question. The examples are drawn from “Rafael Arriaga, A Mexican Father in Michigan: Autosomal DNA Helps Identify Paternity.” National Genealogical Society Quarterly (June 2016).
