Greg will talk about the latest offerings from Ancestry, 23andMe, FTDNA, MyHeritage and LivingDNA including:

  • Are people still testing?
  • New ancestry (ethnicity) reports across the board. Are they getting better?
  • 23andMe – 23andMe+ Service and the FamilyTree
  • Mergers, sales and IPOs – where is this industry going? Is my data safe?
  • There were 160 DNA-related lectures at RootsTech – which ones did you like best?




Greg Liverman, PhD., began tracing his family history in the 1990’s with an old Macintosh computer and a copy of Family Tree Maker.  Over the years, he realized that he could bring to bear all the analytical and problem solving skills he had developed in over 40 years of working as a journalist, scientist and business manager.

Greg and his wife Wendy added genetic genealogy/DNA testing to their brick wall demolition toolkit in 2013 and have immersed themselves in the details of DNA tests and evaluation methods.  They have answered several questions about their family history using DNA evidence  Greg recently launched Pinewood Genealogy to help people with their genealogy research and genetic genealogy analysis.
