"DNA TESTING IN GENEALOGY"

 March 3rd and 10th,  by Karen Chorney  

Background:

The objective of this talk is to introduce family historians to this topic and give them an understanding of the fundamentals of DNA and what the current DNA tests being offered to genealogists are all about. Part 1 of the talk is a review of the biological science about how physical traits (indcluding diseaes) are inherited. Topics includded in Part 1 are: a review of DNA and genes, mitosis vs meiosis in cell divion, Mendel and the laws of heredity, inheritable physical traits, inheritable diseases, and new discoveries such as epigenetics. Part 2 of the ltalk explores the types of DNA tests used by genealogists to answer questions about our ancestors and where you can have various types of tests performed. Armed with the basic understanding provided by this talk, the attendees will be able to determine whether such tests will forward their own research and how to selecet a testing company.

 

Karen Chorney:

Karen retired from the aerospace industry in 1998 and began doing family history research that year, becoming a regular Tuesday visitor at the Los Angeles Family History Library.  Her interest in DNA use in genealogical research began in 2001 with Bryan Sykes's publication of The Seven Daughters of Eve.  The following year she had her mitochrondrial DNA analyzed by Sykes's Oxford Ancestors organization.  Her interest in and study of this topic has continued over the past 10 years, and she has given talks on the subject to the TRW Genealogical Society, the Polish Genealogical Society and at the LA Family History Library in 2006.  This talk is an update of her previous talks.
