The Colorado Genealogical Society is pleased to announce that Angie Bush has accepted our invitation to be the speaker at the CGS seminar on 18 April 2020 at Denver Public Library.
Angie Bush, MS, is the Region 1 Director for the National Genealogical Society, and the chair of the Genetic Genealogy committee. She works as Master Genealogist with AncestryProGenealogists® in Salt Lake City, where she specializes in combining genetic and genealogical evidence to answer questions of kinship and identity.
Angie will present 4 programs on Saturday, April 18, 2020 at Denver Public Library:
· Building an Online Family Tree - This lecture covers the sites that allow users to build their own family trees, the sites that have a combined tree (like FamilySearch and WikiTree) and how to decide what is best for you and your research needs.
· First Steps for Evaluating Your DNA Test - You've taken a DNA test, but aren't quite sure what the first steps should be in reviewing your results. The presenter has evaluated DNA test results for 1000s of clients. Learn the process she uses to review DNA test results to understand how best to incorporate those results to answer genealogical research questions.
· Latest Developments in Company Tools for DNA - Competition in the DNA testing space is fiercer than ever. This is great news for genealogists because each company is pursuing innovations that help users to understand and use DNA evidence in their genealogical research. This session will cover the newest company-based tools to help genealogists make sense of their DNA matches.
· Practical Application of DNA Testing to Genealogical Mysteries - Theoretical knowledge about DNA testing can be useful, but seeing this knowledge come together with examples of case studies brings that theoretical knowledge home. This presentation will show examples of case studies of everything from how DNA test results helped adoptees find their biological families to how DNA toppled long standing family rumors and replaced those rumors with the real family story.
