ABOUT THE PRESENTATION

DNA testing sounds like fun, but what happens when the returning results are unexpected and cause emotional ups and downs?  How do you handle previously unknown relatives? What about unexpected parentage, including donor conception?  How do you react to non-responsive matches? Dr. Lovelace discusses the range of emotional responses to DNA testing.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Janice Lovelace, PhD (psychology), has 30+ years of experience in genealogical research, as well as completing academic work in the area (certificate program in genealogy at Boston University).  She has presented nationally and regionally on women’s and ethnic minority genealogy, research methodology and health issues.
