DNA Historical Studies Course Released

The wait is finally over! The International Institute for Genealogical Studies is pleased to announce the release of our newest online course AND the final compulsory course for our DNA and Genetic Genealogy Certificate. We have been anticipating the launch of DNA: Historical Studies as the 7th addition to our DNA courses. We promise that you will not be disappointed. 

Learn about the history of DNA research with the
International Institute of Genealogical Studies


Genetic genealogy is a topic of immense interest to family history researchers looking to find connections to ancestors when traditional research has failed to provide results. Utilizing both DNA testing and traditional research methods can mean the difference between an elusive ancestor and a documented ancestor. 

But DNA testing is not just for genealogists interested in family relationships and ethnicity estimates. DNA is well-known for solving cold cases for law enforcement. It has also been used to solve some of history’s biggest mysteries such as in the claims of historical identities. Cases explored in the course include Anna Anderson, the Titanic Baby, Jesse James, and the Golden State Killer. 

What can these seemingly non-genealogical cases teach us? Learning more about DNA as it relates to genealogical cases and non-genealogical cases helps to expand and enhance our DNA knowledge and provides insights as we solve research problems. Students are encouraged to explore these cases presented in this course further by seeking out scientific journals and popular media articles. 

Visit the DNA: Historical Studies page for more details. It is sure to inspire you to seek out current DNA projects, especially for events or mysteries related to your research projects. This course is scheduled to begin on the first Monday of every month. It is definitely a course to be added to your DNA Research education. Register today!
