Study on the Social Impacts of Genetic Genealogy
Professor Wendy Roth in the Department of Sociology at the University of British Columbia is doing a research study on the social impacts of DNA ancestry testing -- especially whether it has any effect on identities and attitudes.
We're looking to talk with people with a wide range of experiences to DNA ancestry testing, so we'd be very interested in learning about your experiences regardless of whether the test results had much influence on you or not.
If you have taken a DNA ancestry test and would be willing to help with this project, would you fill out a quick online survey at:http://faculty.arts.ubc.ca/wroth/SurveyIntro.html
It should only take you about 10-15 minutes. It focuses on why you chose to take the test, your background, your experience with genetic genealogy testing, and how the results may have affected you.
You can fill out the survey anonymously, or if you are interested in talking more about your experiences DNA ancestry testing, you can indicate if you’re interested in being contacted for a follow-up interview as well. These optional follow-up interviews are done over the phone and are confidential. But regardless of whether you are interested in the follow-up interview, please complete the quick online survey.
Thank you very much for considering this. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Prof. Wendy Roth at firstname.lastname@example.org
or at (604) 822-4845.
