DNA Interest Group  (Meetings)
1:00 pm
1385 Mendota Heights Rd, Suite 100
John Vanek will present a case study “A Complicated Family: Solving Multiple Paternity Questions Using DNA.” Close relationships can usually be determined unambiguously based on total shared centiMorgans. Usually, but not always. In this presentation, professional genealogist John Vanek will discuss a complicated case involving four siblings who faced multiple paternity questions. Their case raises issues such as: Can we definitively tell the difference between a first cousin once removed and a half-uncle/niece based on shared cM alone? And how much DNA would 3/4 siblings share?
