May 2019 meeting of the DNA Interest Group - Iowa City

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.

May 28, 6-7pm, Room A, Iowa City Public Library
