I am not attending the Family Tree DNA Administrators Conference this weekend. Fortunately, Jennifer Zinck is. Jennifer has posted her notes from the Saturday sessions on her blog at this URL:

The following topics are covered:
  • Introduction to the Conference;
  • Dr Michael Hammer on "Ancient European DNA";
    Announcement of the AncientOrigins result page
    (non-European section is still under development);
  • Presentation by Bill Griffith on his discovery that
    his biological father was not the person who raised thought it was;
  • Janine Cloud presented on "Personal Privacy in Public Projects";
  • “Genographic Project Database: How Genetic Genealogists and Academics are working together”
    by Dr. Miguel Vilar of the National Geographic Society;
  • FTDNA Lab Manager Connie Bormans presented “What’s taking so long?!?!?! The Life Cycle of a DNA sample.”;
  • Michael Sager presented on the FTDNA SNP Tree.
Each presentation had a Q & A section.

Check back tonight for the Sunday sessions.
