Shaking the Family Tree: Using Investigative Genealogy to Solve Major Crimes *Law Enforcement Sensitive*

Presenter: Jeffrey Vandersip, Senior Crime & Intelligence Analyst

Presentation Abstract: This webinar will look at the development of Investigative Genealogy from the analyst's perspective and demonstrate how the Major Crimes Division of the San Diego Sheriff's Department is using this tool in both their active investigations and cold case homicides. It will include tips for best practices, legal considerations, and lessons learned through trial and error. The webinar will cover how to establish accounts through law enforcement-friendly services, how to start building family trees, how to find most recent common ancestors, and how to apply skills analysts use every day to verify relationships. Finally, the session will provide resources for researching historical information and strategies to overcome information gaps and roadblocks. Information will be presented through the lens of several cases that have been solved using these exciting investigative tools.
