Kathleen Fernandes will give a presentation titled DNA Analytics: Using Databases and Spreadsheets to Find Family. A question and answer period will follow along with practice of any skills learned.
Kathleen Fernandes earned her Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from Stanford University and worked as a systems analyst in designing IT systems for the Department of Defense. Since retiring ten years ago, she has been actively pursuing her Portuguese roots and became interested in genetic genealogy as a way to break through the brick walls she encountered in her research. She is particularly interested in tools and techniques for analyzing DNA data in endogamous populations. She has completed several genetic genealogy courses and has begun giving presentations on the topic to local genealogy groups.
