You've seen it on TV, now learn more. This is an overview of using the genetic tests available to build your family history. Using DNA to solve genealogical challenges has become a "must have" skill.

Debra Smith Renard, genealogical researcher and founder of Eureka! Genealogy is a full-time Genetic Genealogist with Legacy Tree Genealogists. During her presentation she will cover basic DNA terms and concepts, the kinds of DNA tests available for genealogical purposes, their inheritance patterns and limitations, and what their results look like. Debra will also discuss identifying your testing goals, which test best meets that objective, and she will give additional resources for further study.

Debra is co-leader of the Louisville Genetic Genealogy Special Interest Group. She is a current board member of the Kentucky and the Louisville Genealogical Societies, and is treasurer of the Kentucky Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists. She also serves as a staff genealogist for the National Society of Sons of the American Revolution. Debra speaks at the local, regional and national levels and is especially passionate about helping those with unknown birth families find their roots.
