Saturday, June 18, 2022
General Meeting
10:00am - 12:00pm
“DNA Clustering: Automating Shared Matching"
Presented by: Alec Ferretti

This talk will demystify autoclustering, by demonstrating how it is simply a more visual method of analyzing shared matches. After a brief overview of the Shared Centimorgan Project, case studies will be used to show how autoclustering is valuable, but also is essentially the same strategy genetic genealogists have been using for years. Strategies to autocluster in the major platforms will be discussed.

Alec Ferretti is a New-York-City-based professional genealogist, who works for the Wells Fargo Family & Business History Center, researching family histories for high net worth clients. He specializes in the genealogy of 20th century immigrants to the US, is a regular lecturer at genealogical societies & conferences, serves as the President of the New York Genealogy & Technology Group, was recently elected to the Board of Directors of the Association of Professional Genealogists, and serves actively on the Board of “Reclaim the Records”, a nonprofit dedicated to wrangling public records from obstinate government agencies.
