TOMORROW (6 June 2013) -- Four sessions of the “Family History and DNA: Genetic Genealogy in 2013” conference will be live streamed on a pay-for-view basis


The International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG) and the Southern California Genealogical Society announce that four sessions of the “Family History and DNA: Genetic Genealogy in 2013” conference will be live streamed on a pay-for-view basis and available for viewing by genetic genealogists around the world. 

“We are especially excited to be able to share four advanced-level sessions with our remote audience. We believe that these sessions will be of the most interest to those project administrators, DNA consultants and other more experienced users of DNA information,” according to CeCe Moore, genetic genealogist and one of the speakers.

“The cost of $30 per individual presentation includes the session’s syllabus," continued Alice Fairhurst, president of the Southern California Genealogical Society and also a speaker at the event. "We are offering a special discount for those who purchase a Full-Day Pass at the discounted price of $100. Full-Day Pass holders will receive a digital download of the entire conference syllabus of 12 articles at no additional cost.”

The sessions to be pay-per-view streamed include:
