Strategies to Analyze Endogamous DNA

Alec Ferretti


This lecture will discuss how best to weed out false-positive DNA Matches that test-takers from endogamous groups face daily. The talk will go through each DNA platform to cover the benefits and pitfalls of each.

Alec specializes in the genealogy of 20th century immigrants to the United States. He is a regular lecturer at genealogical societies and conferences. He serves as the President of the New York Genealogy & Technology Group, was recently elected to the Board of Directors of the Association of Professional Genealogists, and serves actively on the Board of Reclaim the Records, a nonprofit dedicated to wrangling public records from obstinate government agencies.
