Dr. Penny Walters
has been a University lecturer for 30 years in Psychology and Business Studies. Penny's interest in genealogy started after having her first child and then wondering about her biological parents, as she was adopted. DNA testing initially revealed 71% Irish heritage, which has been refined now to 94%. Having researched her 2 family trees for 30 years, Penny lectures internationally and writes articles about a variety of genealogy topics). Penny has authored the books: 'Ethical Dilemmas in Genealogy,'
and ‘The Psychology of Searching.’ www.searchmypast.co.uk
This session will discuss how to mix DNA test results with a paper trail. DNA test results reveal ethnicity estimates, a heritage map, DNA matches/ cousins, the opportunity to contact and collaborate with people. But all that jargon & what next? We will look at the pros & cons of different tests, a variety of helpful methods, putting DNA on different sites, including GEDmatch, and discussing ethical dilemmas.
