It's All Relatives: The Science of Your Family Tree
Thu, May 29th, 2014 | 6:00 pm
(members $25.5)


On May 29, New-York Historical Society, in partnership with the seventh annual World Science Festival, presents a moderated discussion about the newest science in genetic genealogy...and its social implications. Participants include: Dr. Cathy Ball, lead geneticist for Ancestry.com; CeCe Moore, a "citizen scientist" who now oversees the research and stories for the TV program "Finding Your Roots" on PBS; and geneticist Mark D. Shriver of Penn State University, who will showcase his pioneering use of high-tech imaging to extrapolate genetic inheritance largely from the structure of your face... and vice versa. Dr. Shriver will also discuss the impact of his work for those researching their family trees, as well as for historians and forensic experts.

New-York Historical Society members may use code WSFPAR15 to receive 15% off tickets.
