Daniel Earl got his start in family history at age 10 when his father took him to the grave of his great-grandfather; that sparked a lifetime of interest in family history. He has spent the last 25 years researching his own family history and helping others make history a part of their story.
Leah Larkin, PhD
The DNA Geek
Leah Larkin earned a PhD from The University of Texas in Austin for research using DNA to study species relationships. Adapting that scientific skill set to genetic genealogy has become a passion. She focuses on general education in the field, new methods for unknown parentage searches and—as a Louisiana Cajun—best practices for working with endogamous groups. Larkin has been the editor of the Journal of Genetic Genealogy since 2016 and blogs at theDNAgeek.com.
