Chasing DNA and Family Roots - Part One

Underground Magnolia Podcast

14-03-2021 • 47 minutos

This latest episode - Chasing DNA and Family Roots (Part One) - will kickoff a series of shows regarding taking DNA tests and using other methods to find one’s family roots.

The first guest in this series is Dena Chasten, who is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and the Delaware African American Historical and Genealogical Society.

An adoptee, Chasten located her birth parents when she was a teen through a variety of methods including family interviews, public records, and DNA.

With her years of experience in tracking down one’s ancestry, Chasten will unpack her journey in finding her biological family,  host Desireia Valteau's DNA results (which include the controversial Creole culture in Louisiana), and additional ways on how you too can find your roots.
