Ethnicity Results Deep Dive
Many people find the ethnicity estimates provided as part of their DNA test results to be confusing, surprising, and just plain bad. Why is it ethnicity results can get some things so wrong, while others are surprisingly specific and accurate? This presentation goes behind the scenes to explain the science behind ethnicity estimates and genetic communities. Learn about the benefits and limitations of ethnicity estimates, along with techniques to use ethnicity estimates as a tool in genealogy research. Presented by Steven Frank, JD.

Steven Frank is a professional birth searcher and attorney. Since 2015 he has helped over 100 adoptees and persons on unknown parentage reconnect with their birth parents through the use of commercial genetic tests such as AncestryDNA. In 2016 Steven testified before the Indiana Senate Judiciary Committee as an expert on commercial genetic testing. In April 2017, Steven was named the Indiana Adoptee Network’s 2017 Angel in Adoption award recipient for his work reuniting Indiana adoptees with their birth parents.
