Adoption and Misattributed Parentage Events:  DNA-based Research Strategies
Speaker: Meredith Sellers
Hoping to shed light on adoption and misattributed parentage events in your own family tree?  Eager to use your skills to help adoptees connect with biological family members?  Join us to discover how the results of direct-to-consumer genetic tests, Leeds analysis tools, and “What Are the Odds Trees” can help solve decades-old mysteries.  The talk will also address the challenges and nuances of these DNA-based research strategies for those of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage.
Meredith Sellers is a genealogist with a passion for integrating traditional archival research with learnings from direct-to-consumer genetic testing.  Most recently, she has applied these interests by serving as a volunteer “search angel” with the DNA Detectives and Search Squad Facebook communities.  Professionally, Meredith is a technical consultant with a doctoral degree in chemical engineering and the author of numerous books, journal articles, and patents.
