Speaker: David Nowotnik, PhD
 
David Nowotnik was born in the UK of German parents. He earned a PhD in Chemistry from the  University of London and has spent his entire working life in pharmaceutical R&D; half in the UK, and half in the US (New Jersey, Maryland, and Texas). Retirement provided David with the time and opportunity to apply his scientific training to genealogy. David’s own genealogical research has focused on his wife’s ancestors from the UK and Ireland, and his ancestors from central Europe. David enjoys using DNA data to solve mysteries and break through brickwalls. David is a member of the Genealogy Association of Colleyville (GAC) and is one of their Wallbusters Team; a group of enthusiasts from the Colleyville group that tries to help others solve some of their genealogy brickwalls.
