Turi KingWe are delighted and just a little bit excited to announce that we have managed to secure Turi King as our guest speaker at the AGM.
Turi is a scientist, presenter, speaker and author who is passionate about communicating science to the public. She has worked in the field of genetic genealogy since 2000, using genetics in the fields of forensics, history, and archaeology. She is perhaps best known her work “cracking one of the biggest forensic DNA cases in history” (Globe and Mail, February 2013), leading the genetic analysis for the identification of King Richard III. Named as one of the world’s ‘rockstar genealogists’, her work since has covered not only family history but the use of genetic genealogy in forensics and historical cases
