DNA DOWNUNDER UPDATE
As a DNA Downunder Ambassador, I have been following with great interest, the exciting Australian DNA Conference which has so far travelled to Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne. In its final stages the conference still has Sydney to visit.
This conference boasts an exciting lineup of expert speakers including Blaine Bettinger from the USA, Louise Coakley, Kerry Farmer, Michelle Patient and Helen Smith.
Blaine Bettinger, also know as the Genetic Genealogist, has travelled around Australia with the conference and has even managed to see some of Australia's sights with his sons. I was lucky enough to meet Blaine at Rootstech in March of this year and I look forward to learning more about how to best use my DNA results when he speaks in Sydney this coming week.

DNA Downunder bloggers who have attended the conference in one or more cities have written blogs about their conference experiences. I have compiled a list of just a few of these blog posts.
If you still haven't booked for the Sydney three day DNA Downunder Conference there is still time. Here is the 28-31 August 2019, Sydney schedule.
Speakers and organisers associated with this conference have offered a few excellent reasons as to why family historians need to understand more about the use of DNA as a research tool.
