Topic: AI and Genealogy: Trouble Ahead?
While "AI" (artificial intelligence) might be the current "hot" buzz word, the fact is that many genealogy vendors and even genealogists have already been using this technology for years. Learn how AI is currently being used to improve the genealogy experience, and whether or not you should seek out other uses of artifical intelligence for your own genealogy research.
Speaker Bio: 
Thomas MacEntee is a professional genealogist specializing in the use of technology and social media to improve genealogical research and as a means of interacting with others in the family history community.

Facts and Tips
Chromosome: An organized package of DNA found in the nucleus of the cell. Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes. 22 numbered chromosomes, called autosomes and one pair of sex chromosomes X and Y.

Remember that each generation doubles the number of ancestors. It's easy to get lost if you don't plan ahead for your trip. Focus on one or two families. The others will still be there when you get to them.
