Gil Bardige: Help! I tested my DNA and I’m confused!
This presentation will provide specific guidance on how to use DNA as an effective tool in your genealogy tool belt; including a briefcase study that outlines the process. The presentation will show specific examples from the 4 major testing companies to clarify ethnicity estimates and then a detailed review of what matches mean, and the proper steps to take for prioritization then making contact. We want the match’s help with your family tree. Next we will review the tests available, expected results, and who should test. At the end of the presentation you will be able to say, “now I get it…I know what to do.”
Gil Bardige, recently retired, has been a genealogist for over 40 years, with 15 years of experience in DNA/Genetic Genealogy. He has been recognized as someone who can clarify ethnicity estimates and help you understand what matches mean and how to know which ones to respond to and what to expect. You may have heard him speak previously in Orlando or Cleveland or assisted you at mentoring sessions (which he has administrated since their inception. He has tested at all 4 major companies and is a Project Manager at FTDNA of 3 projects including Jewish R1b.. Gil was Business Development Executive for Trane, traveling nationally for nearly 11 years making presentations to Fortune 250 corporations. He understands the need for clear concise slides that build on the screens so as not to overwhelm the audience. Gil is high energy, humorous, speaks clearly, and makes sure that the audience is engaged and participates. No reading word for word and he is never boring.
Gil has utilized DNA to confirm a family relationship on his family tree and even utilized it to prove no relations despite the same surname (Bardiga is a rare surname) and area of the old country.
This presentation is geared to any beginner thru intermediate, or anyone at any level that is confused.
There will be no physical location so the JGSLA Traveling Library and Mentors Corner will NOT be available for this meeting.
