Event Details

THE DNA DETECTIVES is a Power Point Presentation based on my book of the same name.  Many people in the past saw genealogist as studying old bones, searching for ancestry to fill out the Family Tree or for adoptees to locate their real parents.  Now genealogists are in demand helping law enforcement to revolutionize criminology by cracking cold cases, freeing innocent people and bringing justice to families.  When LA District Attorney, Paul Holes was tracking down the elusive Golden State Killer he asked Barbara Rae-Venter, an advanced genealogist to assist him.  Barbara connected him to a 3rd cousin, a retired Sacramento police officer whose DNA was found at the scene of several murders.  The Golden State Killer had committed more than 50 rapes and 14 murders.  Since Sir Alex Jefferys breakthrough research on DNA thousands of cold cases have been solved, many decades old.  Genealogists are aiding law enforcement with their skill in locating familial connections.
