8 am, Friday, 12 May 2017 (FamilyTree DNA)

Bio: Jim Brewster holds a B.A. in Anthropology with an emphasis in North American prehistory and archaeology from Northern Arizona University. He interned as an archaeologist before realizing that conversations with skeletons tend to be one sided. Jim is the family historian and has taught classes in both paper trail and genetic genealogy. He has a lifelong passion for understanding the history of the human family in anthropological and genealogical terms. Shortly after receiving his degree, Jim discovered Family Tree DNA and began turning his passion for understanding into an exciting career. Starting in customer service, he has been employed with Family Tree DNA for nearly three years and is now a Group Project Liaison. Jim works with project administrators and attends conferences and events where he shares his passion to educate people about DNA and genealogy.

Jim describes his session: “Because ‘Getting Your Results Is Just the Beginning,’ I will cover the tools that Family Tree DNA offers for Y DNA, mtDNA, and autosomal DNA. Case examples will show how you can incorporate and combine various DNA reports and tools on the Family Tree DNA website to confirm or rule out genealogical theories and how use of these tools can propel your genealogy to the next level.”
