2014 International Genetic Genealogy Conference

The 2014 International Genetic Genealogy Conference is to be held August 15, 16 and 17, 2014 at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland. The advertised speakers include many of the most knowledgeable genetic genealogists and population geneticists from around the world.

The organizer, the Institute for Genetic Genealogy, is a new independent, non-profit organization founded in 2014 with the express purposes of organizing educational conferences focused on the genetic genealogy field and funding genealogical and anthropological genetic testing and research, founded by Dr. Tim Janzen and CeCe Moore.

As Washington is much closer than Southern California and the SCGS event in June with its associated genetic genealogy event, I'm now looking at this August event as my preferred option for a US conference this year.
