Michelle Roos Goodrum
Michelle Roos Goodrum is a Teaching Assistant for Boston University's Genealogical Research Program since 2015. In the fall of 2018, she joined the teaching team for BU's Genealogy Principles course in their Genetic Genealogy module. Her genetic genealogy journey began when Michelle attended the first ever week-long DNA class, offered at the Genealogy Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP) in July of 2014 and taught by Debbie Parker Wayne, Blaine Bettinger, and CeCe Moore. She has since attended numerous genetic genealogy courses, online and in person. Two were offered at SLIG: Advanced DNA Analysis Techniques (2015) taught by Blaine Bettinger, Angie Bush, and CeCe Moore; and Establishing Genealogical Proof with DNA (2018) coordinated by Karen Stanbary. DNA is a great tool for genealogists to use to solve difficult cases and corroborate (or refute) traditional documentary genealogical research. It's also a rapidly changing field and one with which researchers must work to keep up!
