Only a small percentage of the bearers of any surname ever emigrated to the USA. Yet today there are often more name bearers alive in the US than in the original host country. If you want to identify the origin of a surname, you need to DNA test name bearers outside the USA.

Chris Pomery is a writer and historian with a special interest in the way historians are developing their uses of DNA testing. Since 2000, he has written two books regarding the use of DNA in genealogy, lectured to more than fifty family history groups around England, written two academic papers and dozens of articles for family history magazines, and been interviewed by many national and local radio stations. Chris maintains a consulting arrangement with Family Tree DNA. He teaches online courses on the topic of DNA testing.

The Jamboree Extension Series allows genealogists from around the world to take advantage of the types of sessions that are offered at the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree in Burbank, CA. The series is offered as a service to the genealogical community. Webinar presentations are scheduled on the first Saturday and third Wednesday of each month. The complete list of webinars can be found at

Jamboree Extension Sessions will be archived and available to SCGS members following the webinar. Membership information can be found at
