The Library welcomes Teresa Vega, Cultural Anthropologist and Professional Genealogist. Teresa will provide an overview of DNA testing for genealogists. There are many DNA testing companies available for people who are interested in getting a DNA test done. This talk will discuss the major DNA testing companies in detail as well as basic principles of genetic genealogy. There will be plenty of time for questions to be asked as well.
Teresa is a member of both the NJ and NY Chapters of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society (AAGHS) and a BlackProGenLIVE panelist. She is also the co-administrator of FamilyTree DNA’s Malagasy Roots Project along with CeCe Moore of PBS’s Finding Your Roots and DNA Detectives since 2014.
