Join us for an informative talk about Genealogy and DNA with Colleen Fitzpatrick, PhD. Dr. Fitzpatrick is the founder of identifinders international and is widely recognized as the founder of modern Forensic Genealogy. She has worked dozens of cold case homicides for law enforcement using genetic genealogy analysis.
Dr. Fitzpatrick is also the Co-Executive Director of the DNA Doe Project (DDP), applying autosomal SNP analysis to the identification of John and Jane Does sometimes decades old. The DNA Doe Project recently identified Buckskin Girl, a Jane Doe who had defied identification for 37 years. The DDP team used genetic genealogy to solve the case in four hours.
