DNA Corroborates Oral History & Supports Documentary Evidence
17 April @ 9:00 am - 10:15 am EDT
This lecture is based on a case study that utilized autosomal and Y-DNA to bolster extensive research that pointed to the identity of an enslaved ancestor’s parents. This DNA study illustrates how DNA can be particularly useful in reconstructing genealogies in communities that left few records and little direct evidence.
