IS1619-W - Genealogy, Genetics, and the Next Generation (W)

Session Description

Predicting future trends in the field of genealogy requires that we first investigate the answers to key questions. Who does genealogical research? Why do they do it? In this class we explore some answers to these questions through the use of demographic and immigration data from the past century. Next we explore what these observations mean for the future of genealogy. We identify likely areas of future genealogical interest review record availability in those areas, and explore what role genetic genealogy will play in relation to these observations. In the context of displacement and disconnect, we explore current trends in genetic genealogy and what these mean for the future of genetic genealogy. Finally, we identify action areas and opportunities related to genetic genealogy, traditional genealogy and family history in general.
