My name is Jennifer and I decided to create The Genealogy Laboratory to share my genetic genealogy experiences while researching my own family origins. Through this blog I will share techniques that have worked for me and information I find on my Lujan, Romero, McMahon, and Albin family lines.
I graduated with a B.S. in Clinical Laboratory Sciences and a Master of Public Health some years ago. So I now have a string of various letters behind my name ~MPH, MLS (ASCP)CM. I have been a practicing genealogist for 15 years and a genetic genealogist for the last 5. I have worked as a Medical Laboratory Scientist and a Clinical Analyst for the past decade. I became fascinated with genetic genealogy back when I was an undergrad. As MLS students we were required to perform our own phenotype testing. All of my classmates matched their respective ethnic percentages within the population, I however did not. So began my genetic genealogy quest 🙂
My testing skills include:
- Molecular diagnostic
- Next generation sequencing
- FTDNA Project Admin for the American Indian U.S. South West DNA Project
- New Mexico Genealogy Society Finding Aid Project
- Freelance genetic genealogy research
If you would like to join the American Indian U.S. South West DNA Project please contact me and I can help you through the process.
