We live in a brave new world. You may not have questioned your parents, but science has made an indelible impact on our ability to understand our origins. Today on Home Front we discuss the major breakthrough genetic testing is becoming for all of us.
With the advent of the Information age, we have the ability to acquire more facts than ever before. Today we have a special guest, CeCe Moore who is an independent professional genetic genealogist currently working on two different TV shows: Finding Your Roots and Genealogy Roadshow.
CeCe is also the Lead Ancestry Ambassador for 23andMe and has close working relationships with all of the major genetic genealogy testing companies. Her area of expertise lies in assisting others in understanding DNA testing products such as 23andMe's Relative Finder and Ancestry.com's program called AncestryDNA. On this episode, we talk with CeCe Moore who is the consultant on the TV show, "Finding Your Roots" and a genetic geneologist. CeCe discusses how much people can learn about themselves and their origins just by having their DNA analyzed.
Emily Aulicino, author of Genetic Genealogy: The Basics and Beyond, will join Jane this evening. Emily will explain some of the foundations of DNA testing for genealogy, discuss the purposes of the different DNA tests, and talk about some of the features the three main autosomal DNA testing companies (23andMe, AncestryDNA, and Family Tree DNA/FTDNA) offer to aid genealogists. She'll give us an overview of her book, telling us what we'll discover, and most importantly, she'll give us some examples of how DNA testing solved genealogical mysteries.
