Unlock Your Past through DNA

DNA testing is helping many people solve genealogical mysteries that were once thought to be unsolvable.  Many connections get broken when records are lost, people move far from kin, or birth parentage is unknown.  DNA testing can bring joy, disappointment and even deep sorrow.  The Mayo clinic is testing individual's DNA to predict reactions (positive, neutral, or negative) to drugs.  Let's look at the adventure that is DNA.

Speaker: Alice M. Fairhurst, MS

Alice is President of the Southern California Genealogical Society and serves as the Jamboree co-chair.  She managed the International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG) Y-DNA Haplotree tree for 9 years.  Prior to retirement from JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory), she taught at Cal Poly Pomona and Glendale Community College.  An avid genealogist, she has traced her Scottish, Irish, and French roots back to the old country.
