Speaker, Larry Youngblood, will present The Colonial Youngblood YDNA Genealogy Research Project, A strategy for knocking down brick walls…
Larry Youngblood has lived in and around Houston most of his life graduating from Milby High School and attaining a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physics from Texas A&M University '71 with an emphasis on Math and Computer Science. Larry was a High School teacher before joining the Oil Industry where he specialized first in writing engineering software and later training engineers and accountants in using the software. Word, Excel and PowerPoint were necessities in this role. He is following in the footsteps of his father's passion to find out about his ancestors by researching at the Clayton in the 1970's and travelling from San Antonio across the south to North Carolina rummaging in basements for more detailed records. After his father's passing, with little success on his goal, Larry discovered Family Tree DNA and the YDNA theory which gave him an understanding and a path to accomplish his father's goal, now his goal. Larry has been a Project Administrator now for 15 years using the Family Tree DNA Tools and enjoys working with others-relatives or not. Each year Family Tree has a large meeting in Houston to continue to bring administrators up to date on the latest findings...This year will be The 14th International Conference on Genetic Genealogy. Larry's family book (though his family from 1795 was left out) - Youngblood-Armstrong and Allied Families by Francis and Floelle Youngblood was ultimately the guide once Larry found through YDNA his connect. He is now writing a book of corrections and updates based on the YDNA Project.
