"Your Genetic Genealogist" at SCGS Jamboree 2011

My New DNA Necklace by Alice Fairhurst of SCGS
I have been asked to be on the discussion panel for the SCGS Jamboree 2011 ISOGG meeting today at 5:00 pm along with Bennett Greenspan, Katherine Borges, UCLA Professor John Richardson and Alice Fairhurst to talk a little about DNA testing and this blog. If you are attending Jamboree this year, please join us.

I spent most of the day yesterday at Jamboree at the joint ISOGG/SCGS DNA Special Interest Booth chatting about my favorite subject, DNA testing, with the nice genealogists in attendance. I was happy to see that FTDNA's Bennett Greenspan's lecture was added to the schedule yesterday afternoon, so I attended then instead of having to get up at the crack of dawn today to attend his 8:30am lecture. (I'm driving back and forth.) It's amazing- no matter how many times I hear Bennett talk, I still learn something new! After the exhibit hall closed, I stayed late to attend the Geneabloggers' ice cream social hosted by Geni and met a lot of my fellow geneabloggers. It was especially a pleasure to meet fellow genetic genealogist and blogger Joan Miller of Luxegen and, of course, Geneablogger's Thomas MacEntee.

I am looking forward to hearing 23andMe's Joanna Mountain's lecture today at 11:30 and I am hoping that there will be some interesting tidbits to share with you all.

Gotta get on the road now. Hope to see you there!
