Congratulations to Leah Larkin!

She is the winner of the Ancestry ProGenealogists scholarship to attend SLIG 2019. 

The scholarship was established to "foster and support professional genealogists in their ongoing development efforts," four winners are selected annually; one for each of the four major institutes. The scholarship covers tuition and specific travel expenses.

Leah is originally from southern Louisiana, where she grew up in the heart of Cajun country, steeped in culture and history. She earned her Ph.D. in biology from the University of Texas at Austin, where she used DNA to study how species are related. After working in both academia and scientific publishing, she turned her skills to solving unknown parentage cases using DNA. She currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and two children.

We are looking forward to seeing you in January 2019, Leah!
