Anne Arundel Genealogical Society Meeting

April 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

“Ethics and Genetic Genealogy”
Featuring guest speaker Andrew Hochreiter

Taking a DNA test and looking at your matches is easy. But the ethical questions that
can arise are not. Andrew Hochreiter will help us navigate the minefield of ethical
considerations associated with DNA testing – taking the test, asking others to test,
revealing unexpected discoveries, and the use of DNA databases by law enforcement.
Andrew Hochreiter, MEd, MIS, is a genetic genealogist with over 28 years of experience in
genealogical research and 12 years involved with genetic genealogy. He manages multiple DNA
surname projects and has successfully applied DNA to trace several related family branches overseas.
Mr. Hochreiter instructs continuing education courses in basic and advanced genetic genealogy at
Howard and Anne Arundel Community Colleges, and is a facilitator for the genetic genealogy module
of the on-line Genealogical Research Course at Boston University. He has been a speaker for
numerous organizations and belongs to numerous genealogy organizations. Mr. Hochreiter was
featured on two Bavarian TV programs for his genealogical work tracing relatives in Germany using
DNA. He is a great enthusiast and user of genetic genealogy as a valuable method to trace family
history and solve genealogical problems.
