“DNA Testing to Validate Your Family Tree”

Presented by: Herb McDaniel

Herb will describe the types of DNA tests available to the public and how each can contribute to your genealogy research.

 

Herb McDaniel is an alum of the University of Washington and retired from Boeing as a space program systems engineering manager. His career highlight was serving as the test conductor of the first Lunar Rover Vehicle which went to the moon on Apollo 15. He currently co-chairs the Seattle Genealogical Society’s DNA Special Interest Group and has been involved in genealogical research for over 20 years. Genetic genealogy is a relatively new field that uses DNA testing to validate family lines, find new relatives, or reveal geographic and ethnic origins. Herb has had his own DNA testing performed at National Geographic, DNA Heritage, Family Tree DNA, 23andMe and AncestryDNA. He has helped many to understand the implications and limitations of DNA testing.
