Speaker Changes at Jamboree and Genetic Genealogy 2017 Conferences

Due to the unexpected illness of a family member, Emily D. Aulicino, MA, will be unable to attend the Genetic Genealogy and Jamboree 2017 conferences. Our thoughts are with Ms. Aulicino and her family at this time.

In her place, the following changes have been made:

Genetic Genealogy Conference - Thursday, June 8: 
TH010 and TH018 will now be presented by Cheri Mello.

10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.  
TH010 How to Convince Relatives and Strangers to DNA Test and Why
** This session will no longer be live streamed. Stay tuned for a separate announcement regarding the DNA Live Streamed Sessions.

2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. 

Cheri Mello began dabbling in genealogy as a 5th grader with the U.S. History assignment. She began her active adult research 25 years ago, after the death of her remaining grandparents. Her expertise ranges from various areas of America to Portugal, as well as DNA, genealogy software and more!

Jamboree 2017 - Friday, June 9: 
Workshop FR-A will now be presented by Angie Bush, MS.

8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
*Workshops are separate from Jamboree and required separate registration fees. Registration is now closed. 

Angie Bush, MS, is the Region 1 Director for the National Genealogical Society and the chair of the Genetic Genealogy Committee. Her day job is as Genetic Genealogist Researcher with Ancestry ProGenealogists in Salt Lake City. Although she spends a lot of time working on recent unknown parentage cases (adoptions, unknown fathers), her favorite type of research involves solving decades-old “brick-walls” using a combination of traditional records and genetic evidence. Angie is a Utah native and lives with her husband and two descendants in Sandy, Utah.
