Guest Speaker: Judy G. Russell, the Legal Genealogist

Topic: Genealogy in Your Genes

The key to so many genealogical secrets may be locked inside your genes — but today those secrets can be unlocked through DNA testing. Learn about the three major test types — YDNA, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and the new autosomal DNA testing — and what each offers to the genealogist.

The Legal Genealogist Judy G. Russell, JD, CG, CGL, is a lecturer, educator and writer who enjoys helping others understand a wide variety of genealogical issues, ranging from the interplay between genealogy and the law to the way DNA tests can be used in genealogy.

Ms. Russell is a trustee of the Board for Certification of Genealogists, a member of the National Genealogical Society, the Association of Professional Genealogists and numerous state societies, and on the faculty of the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy, the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research at Samford University, and the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh.

OGS Webinars allow you to expand your genealogy knowledge from the comfort of your own home.

This event is open to OGS members only and is free as a benefit of your membership. For more information about Webinars, visit the Webinars link in the OGS Members Only area.
