7:30 pm to 9:00 pm
Severna Park United Methodist Church, 731 Benfield Road, Severna Park, MD
Taking a DNA test and looking at your matches is easy. But the ethical questions that can arise are not. Andrew Hochreiter will help us navigate the minefield of ethical considerations associated with DNA testing - taking the test, asking others to test, revealing unexpected discoveries, and the use of DNA databases by law enforcement. 
 
Andrew Hochreiter, MEd, MIS, is a genetic genealogist with over 28 years of experience in genealogical research and 12 years involved with genetic genealogy. He manages multiple DNA surname projects and has successfully applied DNA to trace several related family branches overseas. Mr. Hochreiter instructs continuing education courses in basic and advanced genetic genealogy at Howard and Anne Arundel Community Colleges, and is a facilitator for the genetic genealogy module of the on-line Genealogical Research Course at Boston University. He has been a speaker for numerous organizations and belongs to numerous genealogy organizations. Mr. Hochreiter was featured on two Bavarian TV programs for his genealogical work tracing relatives in Germany using DNA. He is a great enthusiast and user of genetic genealogy as a valuable method to trace family history and solve genealogical problems.
