Registration will be closing this Friday, 19 May 2017, for the next course being offered by the Virtual Institute of Genealogical Research: “Visual Phasing: Mapping DNA to Your Grandparents” with Blaine Bettinger, Ph.D., J.D.
Visual Phasing is one of the hottest new tools in genealogy. It allows you to map the DNA of two or more siblings to the four grandparents, WITHOUT having tested either the parents or grandparents. As we’ll see, with enough siblings, it allows you to recreate almost the entire genomes of your four grandparents. You’ll also be able to quickly determine which of the four grandparents’ lines each of your matches share!
Blaine is an intellectual property attorney by day and a genetic genealogist by night. In 2007 he started The Genetic Genealogist (www.thegeneticgenealogist.com), one of the earliest blogs on the topic. For the past eight years, it has been his mission to bridge the gap between traditional genealogy and genetic genealogy. He has been interviewed and quoted on personal genomics topics in Newsweek, New Scientist, Wired, and others. He recently authored The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy and co-authored Genetic Genealogy in Practice with Debbie Parker Wayne, CG.
