DNA, Genealogy, and Privacy: Handling the Double-Edged Sword - free webinar by Thomas MacEntee now online for limited time

The recording of today's webinar, "DNA, Genealogy, and Privacy: Handling the Double-Edged Sword” by Thomas MacEntee is now available to view at for free for a limited time.
Webinar Description
Has your concern for privacy prevented you or a family member for taking a DNA test? What about sharing your genealogy research data online with practical strangers (even though you might be related)? Especially as personal DNA testing increases in popularity, and with increased media attention about cold cases solved using DNA data and the use of genealogy databases, today’s genealogist needs to stay on top of the latest information concerning privacy. We’ll review the current status of privacy practices by the five major DNA test kit vendors, current laws and regulations, the role of law enforcement, and what we might expect to see related to privacy in the future.
