RootsTech 2018 has ended. But the videos of the main sessions will live on. You can see them here:
I was looking for the video of Henry Louis Gates Jr. from the Saturday session, but it is not on the Saturday page. Either his video is just late, or it has been copyrighted and is not going to be made available. I really enjoyed seeing his presentation, he is an excellent speaker and presenter. Meanwhile, many of the other videos are worth viewing, so enjoy the above link.
If you loose track of this posting, just go to http://www.rootstech.org and click on the Menu link (upper right) and then click on Videos under About Rootstech.
For the DNA geeks:
The link below is for the Thursday video given by the scientist from MyHeritage that is an excellent overview of DNA testing for Genealogy. It is by MyHeritage, but the processes are the same for all the companies. It is 59 minutes long but it is worth it, for all levels of DNA interests.
The speaker was Yaniv Erlich, a geneticist from Columbia University who is now employed by MyHeritage as chief scientific officer, the “genome hacker” who mapped a 13 million person family tree from Geni.com (now owned by MyHeritage). This link goes to an article in The Atlantic containing an interview with Dr. Erlich published March 1st, 2018. You should read this too!
