CeCe Moore

Speaker Biography

CeCe Moore is a full time professional genetic genealogist who is considered an innovator in the use of autosomal DNA for genealogy.

She grew up in Rancho Bernardo and attended Mt Carmel High School. Currently, she is working as the genetic genealogy consultant and scriptwriter for season three of “Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.” and recently completed work as the DNA consultant for season two of “Genealogy Roadshow.”

She also works extensively with individuals of unknown parentage to help them learn about their genealogy through DNA, often reuniting them with biological family members. She is the co-administrator of the “Adopted DNA” and “Unknown Fathers DNA” projects at Family Tree DNA and writes the blog “Adoption and DNA.”

As a leading proponent of genetic genealogy education, CeCe organizes conferences, teaches a number of courses around the U.S. and administers popular mail lists and the ISOGG Wiki focusing on genetic genealogy. She is the co-founder of the Institute for Genetic Genealogy and has written the popular blog “Your Genetic Genealogist” since 2010.

One of CeCe’s primary goals is to encourage positive stories about the power of genetic genealogy in the media. She has appeared as a genetic genealogy expert on 20/20, CBS This Morning, The Doctors and “Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.” discussing high-profile cases that used DNA to trace family history and has been quoted on the subject by the Wall Street Journal, People Magazine, Harper’s Magazine, Business Insider, ABC News, Live Science, Huffington Post, The Root, The Invisible History of the Human Race and many more.
