  • Lecture - 01:30pm - 03:30pm  Discussion Session with NSW Police - Genetic genealogy and police investigations

    Location: Richmond Villa, 120 Kent Street Sydney (more information here)

    Convenor: Kerry Farmer        Free for members and non-members, but bookings are essential.  See important details below. 

    Recent developments in the US have created a buzz in the forensic community about this powerful new application to assist investigations. However there are significant ethical and legal issues to consider prior to its widespread adoption in law enforcement.  The NSW and Victorian Police Forces have instigated a project to assess and validate the application of genetic genealogy to Australian investigations, and this session will give the project team an opportunity to engage with the genealogy community to discuss the issues.

    Note this is not a lecture or general information session about genetic genealogy so please only register to attend if you have already tested your DNA, have a good understanding of the current debate taking place about the use of test results by law enforcement agencies on sites such as Gedmatch, and are interested in participating in this discussion.   

    Numbers are strictly limited. Register your interest in attending here – confirmations will be sent out by 10 July.
