Details of New and Modified DNA-Related Standards


Karen will summarize the process undertaken by BCG to create new and modified DNA-specific standards. She will provide an outline of the new standards with emphasis on how they help genealogists meet the Genealogical Proof Standard for conclusions about genetic relationships. The lecture will include some examples illustrating research and writing strategies she uses to meet the standards. 


Presented live at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City as part of the Joy Reisinger Memorial Lecture Series, and sponsored by the Board for Certification of Genealogists.
