DNA Interest Group: Case Study - Using atDNA to Find a German Hometown

Presenter: Ute Brandenburg

Analysis of autosomal DNA matches can provide added evidence when traditional sources are insufficient. This case study will demonstrate how I use DNA in conjunction with paper records to solve challenging cases of German origin for 19th century immigrants.

The DNA Interest Group is designed to bring together individuals in the Iowa City area interested in learning about the use and interpretation of commercial DNA test results. Meetings will address a variety of different topical areas, including applications in genealogy, inferences of traits, exploration of human genetic variation, and the societal impact of these services. Meetings will also include group discussions, and are free and open to the public. If this topic interests you, join us! Meetings will be the 4th Tuesday of the month at 6:00pm in Meeting Room A at the Iowa City Public Library.
