2020 Annual Seminar – A Day with Cece Moore @ Mission Viejo City Hall, Saddleback Room
Oct 17 @ 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

CeCe Moore’s masterful use of genetic genealogy has become legendary. Working with law enforcement agencies, with adoptees, and on television shows like Finding Your Roots bringing the science of DNA and genealogical research into every home, CeCe is engaged in a wide variety of meaningful endeavors, making a difference in people’s lives. CeCe is now frequently a keynote speaker at RootsTech and other major events.

Our 2020 seminar will be a conversation about the most advanced uses of DNA as the key to solving crimes, reuniting families, and shedding light on mysteries. CeCe will bring her latest cases, puzzles, techniques and successes, and tell us the stories we cannot hear from anyone else. The day will be untraditional for a seminar – these will not be step by step beginner lessons with basic handouts, so we encourage everyone to spend the next year getting all of your fundamental questions answered with the help of our wonderful DNA Special Interest Group! Details will be announced as plans are finalized.
