‘I’m just compiling our family tree, what can go wrong?’ This session will discuss what ethics and morality mean, and what these have to do with genealogy. Ethical dilemmas in genealogy came to the forefront since law enforcement utilised information from GEDMatch to apprehend a suspected serial killer. These issues include exposing secrets and lies, and unexpected DNA results. Many people have to struggle through ethical dilemmas on their own, so attendees at this session will benefit from considering ethical issues with more empathy and sensitivity.
Speaker: Dr. Penny Walters lectures internationally in-person, presents webinars, writes articles and has authored the books: 'Ethical Dilemmas in Genealogy,' and ‘The Psychology of Searching’. www.searchmypast.co.uk
