In this presentation, Dr. Schmitt Lavin will discuss the outcomes of the NSU Farquhar College Honors course HONR 1000N Genetics and Genealogy (since 2007). Students explore the connections between genetics, human evolution, and genealogy. They combine ancestral DNA results with genealogy research to craft a family tree and narrative, presenting their findings in class and archiving them on the NSUWorks site: https://nsuworks.nova.edu/genealogy-reports/.
