Presenter Diahan Southard will be talking about:

  • Eight ways your DNA test impacts your family history
  • Five tips to make sense of your DNA testing
  • You and your 1000+ DNA cousins
  • Can DNA define who you are?

Diahan began in the genetic genealogy industry when she helped pioneer the Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation (SMGF). Now having spent nearly 20 years in the genetic genealogy community, all of her knowledge and experience have culminated as owner of Your DNA Guide where she and her team provide personalized, interactive experiences to assist individuals and families with interpreting genetic results in the context of their genealogical information. She has written quick sheets to aid in DNA test interpretation and produced an online DNA tutorial series on genetic genealogy. She and her team also provide expert genetic genealogy research and DNA mentoring services to directly impact genealogists seeking to use DNA in their family history research. She writes for Family Tree Magazine, Your Genealogy Today and her own blog. Diahan is well known for her lectures which are always fun, upbeat, and full of energy, as well as her graphics which are clear and easy to understand. She has a passion for genetic genealogy, a genuine love for people, and a gift for making the technical understandable.

The registration fee includes box lunch, and there will also be a silent auction, raffle items and HQRL book sales.
