Genetic Genealogy (DNA for genealogy) is one of my interests. I’m off to the FTDNA project administrators’ conference this weekend (November 4 to 6, 2011) in Houston, Texas. The speaker line up looks great.
- Doron Behar, PhD, MD Population Geneticist (Chief mtDNA Scientist and member of the Scientific Advisory Board of FTDNA)
- Michael Hammer, PhD Geneticist (FTDNA’s Chief Scientist, and member of the Scientific Advisory Board)
- Steve Morse, PhD, author of the website “One Step Pages” (His talks are excellent. I’ve heard him a couple of times at Rootstech and SCGS Jamboree)
- Spencer Wells, PhD (Dr. Wells has appeared in several films and is the author of three books including The Journey of Man, is a geneticist and anthropologist, an Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society. He leads The Genographic Project. His wikipedia profile is here).
