Genetic Genealogy in Forensic Investigations

 

Katie Thomas, Investigative Genetic Genealogist

      Investigative/Forensic Genetic Genealogy is an emerging field utilizing extracted DNA from an unidentified individual, combined with traditional genealogy methods to assist in the identification of unknown individuals. 

This presentation will discuss the basics of investigative/forensic

genetic genealogy and show how these methods have been

used in real forensic cases across the United States.

Katie is a graduate of the Forensic Genealogy Training for Law Enforcement program.  She has
completed the genealogical coursework at the University of Strathclyde and is a member of the
National Genealogical Society (NGS) and the International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG).
