About this webinar

Investigative, or Forensic, Genetic Genealogy (I/FGG) is the relatively recent application of traditional genetic genealogy skills, tools, and resources with the objective to assist Law Enforcement agencies in identifying unidentified human remains or suspects of violent crimes, among other cases. With this introduction, we will learn how I/FGG started, how it works, how is it different from traditional Forensic DNA Typing, and other traditional genealogical and genetic investigations used in criminal justice, and what changes are in place to ensure that I/FGG can be done safely, ethically, legally, and without compromising the privacy and integrity of the genetic genealogical community.

    5 out of 5 for this webinar!! I have attended approximately 10 webinars so far today, and, for me, this one was the best. It was incredibly interesting and informative. The slides were clearly presented. Ugo Perego is a fantastic teacher. I would love to be one of his students as I feel I would have the potential to learn so much from him. ***Please ask him back for more webinars, so he can share his wisdom with us, and we can be further educated on genetic and forensic genealogy *** Thank you!

    Dr Perego is such a good speaker, organized in his thought, well presented, and so thoughtful about who he is presenting to. He takes a complex subject and makes it so that anybody can understand the concepts he is discussing. He is a gifted speaker and this profession is lucky to have him. By far my favorite.

    I have enjoyed the webinars very much. My one suggestion is to include more of the charts from the presentations put in the syllabus for better clarification.,

    Very interesting, I wish this info had been available 40 years ago when I was young and capable of working with it.
