I'll be discussing how the use of Gedmatch has led to the identification of at least fifteen “missing persons” in the US (including murder victims and serial killers), and there are over 100 additional people awaiting identification within the Gedmatch database. This novel use of DNA & Genealogy in combination will be reviewed and ethical issues discussed.

This lecture was presented at Genetic Genealogy Ireland 2018 in Dublin. Please note that these GGI2018 videos are copyrighted to the presenter and should only be used for personal study. They are not to be used for any other purpose without the presenter's express permission. Also, please note that because this is a rapidly advancing field, the content may quickly become outdated.

The lectures were sponsored by FamilyTreeDNA (at www.ftdna.com) and organised by Maurice Gleeson, a volunteer from ISOGG (International Society of Genetic Genealogy at www.isogg.org). ISOGG volunteers provided free DNA advice and support for members of the public at the conference.
