Saturday, April 18th, 2020

Mike Maglio presents The Adopted, the Illegitimate and DNA

FREE courtesy of MSOG, Inc., Bristol Chapter

Via GoToWebinar – pre-registration required LINK HERE AND REGISTER NOW

Known as “The Origin Hunter”, Mike will walk us through a process using autosomal DNA to identify biological parents and missing family tree links. This is an intermediate DNA presentation that combines many beginner steps. It takes tradition genealogy, DNA and little detective work to help an adoptee find their biological parents. We’ll use all of our skills to build family trees, sort DNA into family lines and contact the right cousins to break through the obstacles. The process also works for an illegitimate ancestor or can help with other brick walls in the past 5 to 6 generations.

Mike is a professional genealogist, writer, and speaker. Born and raised in Massachusetts, he is the son of an Irish Italian father from the Northeast and Scotch-German mother from the Midwest. He graduated from Northeastern University with a B.S. in Engineering and has spent his career developing collaborative technologies. As a genetic genealogist, Mike advises on the use of DNA as a tool for genealogy through his site - www.OriginsDNA.com. His focus combines science and history to unravel ancestral genetic migrations.
