Jamboree 2016: DNA World Roundtables - JamboFREE Friday

DNA World Roundtables 

Are you looking curious about DNA- the newest popular tool in the genealogist's toolbox? Trying to figure out how to use your test results to break down your brick walls? Need help figuring out what test is best for you?

Join us and discuss your research successes or problem ancestors in an informal roundtable format at Genealogy World.

DNA World is scheduled for Friday morning, June 3. Session #1 will run from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., and Session #2 will run from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon. 

It's just one of a number of JamboFREE activities, which means it is open to the public and available to attend at no cost. (We would appreciate your registering in advance so we know how many people to expect.)

Thanks to the SCGS DNA Interest Group and the Genetic Genealogy community, DNA World Roundtables will feature twelve tables in a separate room devoted to a variety of DNA topics (you asked, and we heard you!).

The list of table topics is still being finalized, but here's a list of possibilities that might be included:

Autosomal DNA Help
Autosomal Segment Matching from Intermediate to Advanced
Autosomal Triangulation for Beginners
Cousin, Surname, and Overseas Recruitment
DNA Testing with Emphasis on Endogamous (e.g. Askenazi)

DNA Testing for Adoptees
DNA Testing for African Americans
Genetic Genealogy for Beginners
Selecting the Right DNA Test to Meet Your Needs
X chromosomal Questions
