Over the coming days, Record Click will be publishing a three-part series of extremely interesting and informative articles that will help you to understand better about genetic genealogy and DNA testing. Our expert contributing author is Dr. Tim Janzen, a medical doctor and geneticist who has had an interest in genealogical research for more than 35 years, especially in phasing and autosomal DNA analysis. Dr. Janzen supports the use of DNA analysis as a complement to traditional genealogical research. He currently serves as co-administrator of the Mennonite DNA project.
In addition to running a family practice at South Tabor Family Physicians in Portland, Oregon, Dr. Janzen is a consultant to the genetics company 23andMe as one of their Ancestry Ambassadors. He also serves on the ISOGG Y-DNA Haplogroup Tree Committee.
Dr. Janzen periodically gives presentations on genetic genealogy and also does private genetic genealogy consulting on a case-by-case basis. His other passions include wife Rachel Janzen and their four children.
