Barbara Shoff, a genetic genealogist, will discuss how to use autosomal DNA testing to find biological family members. Her talk will include methods and online tools that can aid in the search, and be used by both adoptees and those who have a relative in their genetic line who were adopted. She will discuss using a form of “reverse genealogy” to aid in the identification process to find unknown parents, and she will emphasize using various tools to solve these mysteries.
