Special EventReal Life Cases from the Desk of a Genealogy DNA Detective
Featuring CeCe Moore
DNA testing is revealing unexpected surprises in the trees of many genealogists, involving both immediate and more distant ancestors. These surprises often lead to fascinating stories that could never have been unearthed without DNA and this new-found knowledge has taught us that our family trees on paper may not always be the same as our true genetic genealogy. After learning of its potential to reveal and unravel complex family relationships, many are flocking to DNA testing to solve their own family mysteries. Actual cases from the presenter’s own files will be shared.

She currently works as the genetic genealogy consultant for two PBS television series “Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.” and “Genealogy Roadshow.” She is the co-founder of the Institute for Genetic Genealogy, an instructor for a number of courses and conferences, and the author of Your Genetic Genealogist (www.yourgeneticgenealogist.com) and Adoption and DNA (www.adopteddna.com).
