Saturday, April 4, 2020

Guest Speaker: Carol Kostakos Petranek presenting
Preserving and Sharing the World’s Records:  We Can Help!
 
Major genealogy companies have embarked on a profound initiative—to preserve the world’s records of genealogical value, and to make them available to researchers in digital format. However, smaller countries are frequently overlooked by the largest companies, even though their records are of huge importance to specific communities. This presentation will discuss my digital preservation initiatives as a volunteer in Sparta, Greece, and how to become involved in a "niche" region. I will show examples of the records that are being preserved and discuss upcoming projects.
 
Carol Kostakos Petranek serves as an Assistant Director of the Washington, D.C. Family History Center where she coordinates classes, conferences and community outreach projects. She is an active member of the Greek genealogy community, participating in Greek associations, teaching at local and national conferences, and blogging at SpartanRoots.wordpress.com. Carol is a volunteer at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. and serves as a Genealogy Aid in the Research Room. She is affiliated with FamilySearch on several initiatives, including a digitization project at the Maryland Archives, and with MyHeritage on record acquisitions in Greece.

Update on Workshop April 24, 2020
1:00 – 4:00 PM
DoubleTree Hilton,  Laurel, MD
 
Using DNA Tools at AncestryDNA to Exploit Genetic Test Results in Family Research
Presented by Andy Hochreiter
 
 
This workshop will be a hands-on experience to become familiar with the tools at AncestryDNA to analyze and use DNA test results. AncestryDNA offers many benefits including the largest database of all the DNA test companies. It contains over 15 million people who have tested at AncestryDNA, a fact that provides increased prospects to find matches, compare family trees, and identify common ancestors. But many people are stumped after they receive their DNA results and do not know how to apply them to their family research. This workshop will provide a survey of the AncestryDNA tools and offer exercises to use them in the classroom.
The world of genetic genealogy is dynamic. AncestryDNA has been proactive in implementing new and improved tools to help test takers to exploit their DNA results. But upgrades at AncestryDNA can leave participants confused by the changes. This workshop will review these improvements to provide an understanding of their purpose and application in the DNA analysis process. Attendees will learn how to exploit the tools to advance their genealogical research. Techniques and procedures will be introduced and associated with tool use by practical exercises to reinforce the learning experience.
AncestryDNA offers several means to connect with others and explore your common roots using DNA results. These include DNA Matches and ThruLines. The use and interpretation of these applications will be explained, along with supporting features such as GroupsFamily Trees, and Shared Matches. The concepts behind these tools such as Genetic Networks, Estimated Relationship, and Tree Triangulation will be clarified. The value of comparing matches’ pedigrees, ethnicity, DNA results, and groups will be highlighted in examples and exercises. The goal of this workshop is to provide the follow-on steps to apply your DNA results to finding family and breaking down brick walls.
 
Who Should Attend?
 
This workshop is intended for those who already understand the basics of genetic genealogy and want to explore how to apply various tools and techniques to extend their family history research. The completion of a DNA test, especially at AncestryDNA, will enhance the experience of the workshop. Attendees are encouraged to bring their laptop or tablet, AncestryDNA (or other test company) log-in information and DNA raw data file.
