About The Event

We often read of decades-old cold cases solved through the use of DNA. A youthful face from another era draws us into the retelling of a story of loss, a long-sought resolution now provided to loved ones. The process behind this is known as investigative genetic genealogy, Join us on Sunday, June 23 at 1 p.m. CDT when genealogist Jarrett Ross presents a talk, Exploring Investigative Genetic Genealogy, including the history and methods of investigative genetic genealogy (IGG), current IGG educational opportunities, the major companies in the field, and some of the newest technologies being implemented in the field.

Jarrett Ross, also known as the Genea Vlogger, has successfully connected with thousands of relatives all over the world, helped build hundreds of trees for people of varying ancestral backgrounds, and has worked on hundreds of genealogical projects of varying types. Jarrett previously worked as the Lead Forensic Genealogist at DNA Labs International, helping create investigative leads to identify unknown human remains and perpetrators of violent crimes. He now focuses on content creation and genealogy education. Jarrett specializes in Genetic Genealogy and Sephardic Jewish research with an emphasis on the Portuguese Jewish Community of Amsterdam. Jarrett also focuses on Jewish Agricultural Societies of Southern New Jersey, Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry in the Pale of Settlement, Jews in America, and Jews in Ukraine.
