"Clustering Tools for DNA Test Analysis"
 
Speaker:   Greg Liverman, PhD, DNA Specialist, Lecturer/Presenter, Technologist & Project Manager
 
 
Greg Liverman, Ph.D., began tracing his family history in the 1990's with an old Macintosh computer and a copy of Family Tree Maker, but was not able to devote much time to genealogy until 2009. Greg quickly realized that he could bring to bear all the analytical and problem solving skills he had developed in over forty years of working as a journalist, scientist and business manager. Living on a ranch on the western slopes of Pikes Peak, Greg has become adept at using online resources for both domestic and foreign research. He has researched his family history virtually worldwide and "on the ground" in libraries, cemeteries and records offices in seven states, with more on the list to visit. He has experience in using various techniques, based on the careful application of reason and logic, to successfully break down “brick walls”.
 
Greg and his wife Wendy added genetic genealogy or DNA testing to their brick wall demolition toolkit in 2013 and have immersed themselves in the details of DNA tests and evaluation methods. They have answered several questions about their family history using DNA evidence. Most of Greg and Wendy's lectures deal with the use of genetic evidence.

“Publishing Your Genealogy Project”. Class

Saturday, August 21, 2021, 9:00am-10:30am CDT

 
"Publishing Your Genealogy Project"
 
Speaker:   Debby Warner Anderson, genealogist, blogger and lecturer
 
Registration Fee: $10.00  (OGS Members: $5.00)
OGS Members must be logged in to receive the member discount.
 
Debby has been interested and involved in genealogy since her early teens. She remembers sittng and listening to her grandmother tell stories about various family members and wanting to learn more.  Her grandparents both came from big families and she thought by writing down who different people were helped her keep it all straight.  She remembers being intrigued by a big cemetery stone in a local cemetery that told the story of the family line on it.
 
After teaching special education for over 35 years, she is now retired and has more time to devote to researching, visiting her family and visiting areas her ancestors lived to learn more about ‘their’ stories. She just finished a 10 year project of digitizing and printing over 100 of her great-grandmother’s letters from 1880-1910 with sidebars explaining who and what she was talking about.
 
She has been writing about her discoveries in 'Debby’s Family Genealogy Blog' for about 5 years now. She belongs to a variety of societies including the San Diego Genealogy Society, Aldred Kindred of America and the General Society of Mayflower Descendants.  Her passion as a teacher causes her to want to share what she has learned and help others on their journey to discover their ancestors.  She enjoys doing presentations along with meeting new cousins and fellow researchers. Her hobbies also include Agility with her dog Harley, Scrapbooking, gardening and traveling in her Camper.
