SPECIAL INTRO DNA CLASS
In Preparation for the SGS Fall Seminar, SGS is offering a Special Intro DNA Class on Sunday, August 10, 2:00-4:00pm at the SGS Library
Many people who are researching their family history/genealogy have a great deal of ‘paper trail’ documentation to show their ancestry. Those who are just beginning their research often have very little information to use and can feel overwhelmed. DNA testing can help you validate your family line, prove or disprove relationships, and add new lines to your family tree.
The ‘new tool’ in the family history toolbox is DNA research. But it can be relatively expensive and hard to decide what kind of test is needed and what information the test will provide. As one SGS member asked, “What will I get that will be worth the money?”
To help provide the information on DNA testing and genealogy/family history that will help you decide whether you want to do the testing Seattle Genealogical Society (SGS)is providing an informational presentation by Herb McDaniel, co-chair of the SGS DNA Special Interest Group. He will discuss the tests available, what the different companies provide their customers, and general information to help you decide whether to test or not to test.
