The IHIA, in partnership with the ILHIA, is pleased to announce the 3rd DNA & Genealogy Summit. 

This is another 2 1/2 day summit full of case studies, lessons learned, practical and hands-on training specifically designed for law enforcement investigators.  

The IHIA will be hosting pre-conference webinars.  The goal of the webinars is to prepare prospective and registered attendees with foundational knowledge of FIGG. The webinar is not mandatory but free of cost. Attend to find out how FIGG matters in homicide investigations and why you should attend the upcoming DNA & Genealogy Summit. There are three (3) opportunities to present.



Thank you for your participation!

*This training summit is for law enforcement officials and those working directly with law enforcement.  Those without governmental contact information will be vetted by the IHIA board to determine eligibility.  This includes Genetic Genealogists, who are not employed by law enforcement agencies.  Genealogists must work directly with law enforcement and must be able to provide a law enforcement contact as a reference.  If you have questions, please email Steve Lewis.  

**Department credentials will be required at check-in.**

The cost is $375.00, which includes all training materials, an IHIA membership, and a Social Networking Event.

Active IHIA members pay $325 for the course!
