"Your Genetic Genealogist" discussing DNA at FinnFest 2011

Finnfest 2011 will be rolling into San Diego from August 10-14. There is a full schedule of genealogy lectures, panel discussions and workshops detailed here, including a panel discussion moderated by "yours truly" exploring the application of genetic testing to Finnish genealogy. Participating are University of Turku Professor Auvo Kostianinen, FTDNA's Jane Buck, founder and administrator of the Finland DNA Project Lauri Koskinen, and retired MD and genetic genealogy enthusiast Paula Erkkilä.

If you are in the area, please come by. I would love to see my many Finnish genetic cousins and friends.
