Glenn York

Glenn York presents: "Finding a Birth Mother, A DNA Case Study"

Description: This is a case study of a woman who was adopted at birth in the early 1950's. She appeared to be related to my 2nd great grandparents. I will discuss the steps used to analyze her DNA matches, and then how those matches and family tree information were used to identify her birth mother, and her birth father's family.


BIO:  Glenn York is an avid genealogist with decades of research experience at numerous facilities across the United States. Over the years Glenn has gained extensive experience in genetic genealogy, and works with tests at all major DNA testing companies. He was first tested in 2005, and he currently manages DNA tests for over 35 family members.

Glenn is past President of the Larimer County Genealogy Society, and a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, National Genealogical Society, Genealogical Speakers Guild, and many other genealogical and historical societies. Glenn also facilitates monthly DNA study groups for two area genealogical societies, teaches genealogy classes, and volunteers at a local library to help people with genealogy research. He is also co-administrator of several DNA projects at Family Tree DNA.

Glen has completed over 12 courses at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) and the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP), and has assisted many in discovering their biological families using genetic genealogy techniques.
