SLIG 2023: DNA Dreamers: Integrating DNA Evidence to Resolve Complex Cases

Back by popular demand with all-new case studies!

DNA Dreamers: Integrating DNA Evidence to Resolve Complex Cases, coordinated by Karen Stanbary, MA, LCSW, CG, is an advanced course designed to deconstruct and study researcher decisions, strategies, and methodologies employed in the correlation of documentary and genetic evidence to establish proven genealogical conclusions. Familiar genealogical skills will be dissected with a DNA twist. Besides working through faculty-provided case studies, several lucky volunteers will have the opportunity to present a real-life "stuck case" and participate in a "think-tank" around options for next steps.

Faculty includes:
  • Catherine Desmarais, CG
  • Melissa A. Johnson, CG
  • Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG, FASG, FNGS, FUGA
  • Angela Packer McGhie, CG, FUGA
  • David E. Rencher, AG, CG, FUGA, FIGRS
  • Richard G. Sayre, CG, CGL, FUGA
  • Paul Woodbury, MEd, AG
This is an advanced-level course with prerequisites:
  • Completion of a full-week institute course at any genealogical institute in each of three categories:
    • Advanced Methodology, Advanced Genealogical Methods, or Mastering Genealogical Proof;
    • Beginning DNA, Introduction to Genetic Genealogy, or Practical Genetic Genealogy;
    • Establishing Genealogical Proof with DNA, Intermediate DNA, Chromosome Mapping, Advanced DNA, or SLIG Virtual DNA Practicum.
  • If a registrant does not meet the prerequisites, a work sample that correlates genetic and documentary sources to establish a conclusion meeting the Genealogical Proof Standard may be submitted for consideration to the course coordinator.
DNA Dreamers: Integrating DNA Evidence to Resolve Complex Cases is scheduled to meet online January 23–27, 2023. All SLIG 2023 courses will be offered virtually this year. (See you in person in Salt Lake City in 2024!)

See the SLIG 2023 Courses web page for more information, including updates.

SLIG 2023 registration opens Saturday, July 16, at 10:00 am MDT.
