FTDNA Joins SLIG as Sponsor of DNA Course

We are pleased to announce that Family Tree DNA has joined SLIG as sponsor of the DNA course for SLIG 2018.

Course 13: "A Practical Approach: Establishing Genealogical Proof with DNA," coordinated by Karen Stanbary, incorporates hands-on exercises, case studies, and analytical software in a lab-type setting throughout the course.

This sponsorship makes it possible for SLIG to provide additional staffing during those labs, as well as key reference documents for ongoing use, enhancing the student experience without the cost of additional tuition.

"Founded in 2000, Family Tree DNA pioneered the field of genetic genealogy and is the first company to offer direct-to-consumer DNA testing for genealogical purposes. Family Tree DNA offers the world’s most comprehensive matching database, helping to unlock family history and find DNA matches across the globe. 

"With a simple cheek swab, our advanced suite of tests provides interactive tools for users to further their research, determine ethnic and geographic origins, and discover shared ancestry across all lines. Testing through Family Tree DNA will help you break through brick walls and connect more dots on your family tree! 

"We also offer free-to-join volunteer led group projects covering genealogical topics from surnames, geographical regions, haplogroups and more. Family Tree DNA strives to continue bringing genealogy to life with innovation and exceptional user experiences."

Thank you FamilyTree DNA!
