Using DNA to Find Your Ancestors
Mark Fearer

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Although relatively new, DNA testing is not only giving people estimates of their ethnicity, but perhaps more importantly, helping people find ancestors and living relatives in a way not possible until now. The program will look at the "how and why" of genetic genealogy, including the different kinds of tests, the companies offering tests and what the results can tell you. Attendees will learn the importance of combining DNA test results with traditional genealogy methods and research.

BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: Mark Fearer is a professional genealogist with Ancestral Discovery who lectures, teaches and writes about genealogy. He has pursued family history since 1984 and has researched in a number of local, state and federal archives and is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, National Genealogical Society and several local genealogy societies. He has attended a variety of national and international genealogy conferences, along with the Institute for Genealogy and Historical Research, and Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh.
