  • June 2,2015 Time 7:30 pm
    Meeting - Durham Region Branch, OGS, Oshawa. ON
    Speaker: Dr. Maurice Gleeson, London England. Program: Supercharging your genealogy with DNA. DNA testing is really easy to do, costs about $125.00 Canadian dollars, and is helping family history researchers break through Brick Walls that they never thought would come down. The technology behind DNA testing has been given a real boost by the Adoption Community who have developed tools and methodologies to facilitate the use of DNA to reconnect adoptees with their birth families. These same technologies have proven to be of real benefit to ordinary everyday genealogists too. Maurice will explain how DNA testing (and autosomal DNA in particular) can help you connect with genetic cousins and solve your own family mysteries He will also explain how to focus the attack on your Brick Walls by testing several targeted family members. He will illustrate his talk with real life examples, including an adoption success story from his own family. Dr. Maurice Gleeson is a Psychiatrist, pharmaceutical physician, some time actor and genetic genealogy convert. He runs several DNA projects at Family Tree DNA, has several blogs, and has a YouTube channel devoted to videos on Genetic genealogy with the aim of making the subject understandable and accessible to the widest audience possible. He was born and grew up in Dublin, is based in London (UK) and lectures on genetic genealogy worldwide.
