Seattle: Forensic genealogy program

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Washington State is preparing for another great speaker - Colleen Fitzpatrick - at its next meeting on March 19, at 7 p.m.

According to Lyn Blyden, JGSWS president:
"You don't have to be a rocket scientist to get the most from your genealogical materials. Colleen Fitzpatrick will talk about the techniques of forensic genealogy, focusing on how to draw information out of old photos."

Colleen Fitzpatrick is an expert in optical and laser measurement techniques, with many years of experience in developing innovative technologies for NASA, the National Science Foundation, and the Department of Defense. She is also an avid genealogist. Her book Forensic Genealogy has been praised for its innovative application of forensic science investigative techniques to genealogical research, and has been featured on NPR and in genealogical publications. She is also the co-author of DNA & Genealogy.

The evening will begin with a Q&A; attendees are asked to bring questions or share success stories.
