About the Talk
Does your family tree resemble a tumbleweed? Do you have thousands upon thousands of DNA matches that make no sense? DNA matches that don't show up for your parents or matches that seem to all match each other? Do you just feel overwhelmed and frustrated with your DNA results? Don't give up! In this presentation, Dr. Adina Newman will provide strategies to navigate and combat the effects of endogamy at the major commercial DNA testing companies.
