Popular Genetic Genealogist, CeCe Moore, to Speak at RootsTech 2017

What family mysteries can be unlocked through the growing availability of home DNA tests and ever-expanding online databases and genealogical tools?

New family connections are depicted weekly in the media and online social forums as millions turn to genetic genealogy to help uncover or dispel long-held family facts, fiction, and questions. CeCe Moore, the popular genetic genealogist and founder of TheDNADetectives.com, will be sharing these and other fascinating perspectives of DNA science as the keynote speaker on Saturday, February 11, 2017, at RootsTech, the world’s largest family history conference.

Moore, who’s been on the leading edge of genetic genealogy as one of its leading proponents and pioneers, is a sought-after media consultant collaborating regularly with ABC’s 20/20, showcasing her cutting-edge work reuniting individuals of unknown parentage with biological relatives through genetic genealogy. She also appeared as a genetic genealogy expert on the CBS Morning News, Good Morning America, The Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors, and Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. where for three seasons she has worked as a consultant and scriptwriter.

 

CeCe Moore, The Genetic Genealogist
“Genetic genealogy is showing us that our ancestors are an important part of who we are today. Thousands, even millions, of us are learning that our very own DNA holds the key to so many mysteries and incredible discoveries.”
CeCe Moore, The Genetic Genealogist

Moore’s knowledge and unique talents have afforded her many opportunities to share what she’s learned on screen, in writing, and in person as a popular speaker.

“It is a dream come true and a personal goal fulfilled to be invited to speak as a keynote presenter at the largest genealogy conference in the world, RootsTech!” said Moore. “RootsTech is always so full of energy and anticipation. It will be exciting to share my experiences from the fascinating world of genetic genealogy. I am constantly amazed by the compelling stories I encounter in my work every day, and I look forward to sharing that with the audience and illustrating the power of DNA.”

Moore combines her extensive knowledge of the latest DNA research and testing with modern genealogical technology to shed light on family history mysteries. She works extensively on a pro-bono basis with individuals of unknown parentage to help them learn about their genetic heritage, often reuniting them with biological family members.

“Genetic genealogy is showing us that our ancestors are an important part of who we are today,” said Moore. “The more we learn and discover, the clearer this has become. As genealogists, we are all seeking to better understand our ancestral history and, through that, gain insight into ourselves. Thousands, even millions, of us are learning that our very own DNA holds the key to so many mysteries and incredible discoveries.”

A leading proponent of genetic genealogy education, Moore is the co-founder of the Institute for Genetic Genealogy and helped create and teach groundbreaking genetic genealogy courses at all of the major genealogical institutes. She maintains her popular blog Your Genetic Genealogist, and created and runs the largest online DNA focused forum, the DNA Detectives Facebook group.

I see that CeCe Moore and Buddy Valastro will be keynote speakers on Sat. 11 Feb. 2017. My **big** question? At what hour? It's easy to find the afternoon speakers: Pres. Nelson at 1 p.m., Sheri Dew at 2:15 p.m., and Hank Smith at 3:30 p.m. But it's impossible to find the hours of CeCe Moore and Valastro. Please help! Please point to the site where that info. can be seen.

I'm a member of DNA detectives and a Facebook adoptees search group, I found my birth mother, I am still seeking my birth father and other genetic family. I was surprised to find some Mormon pioneer roots with a Benjamin Thomas Mitchell at 5 or 6 generations although I have not figured the exact relation and it is yet to be seen which side maternal or paternal the relationship will end up being. The historical part of studying the individuals I am descended from or related to throughout time is fascinating to me and I love finding the journals, wills or stories left behind whatever their life roles may have been.
