Katherine Borges, Director of the International Society of Genetic Genealogy. I am a member of Southern California Genealogical Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, and Colonial Dames of the XVII Century, Director of ISOGG, and President of the Salida Chamber of Commerce. I co-founded and became Director of the International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG), which promotes and educates about genetic genealogy to over 8,000 members in 70 countries. We work to increase professional standards in the practice, research, and discussion of relevant issues in DNA testing, interpretation, and ethics. I now give many presentations on genetic genealogy to groups across the United States and the United Kingdom, as well as administering several surname, regional, and haplogroup DNA projects.
