July Monthly Meeting – What you should know about DNA testing for Genealogy by Janine Cloud
July 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Everyone and their cousin seem to be taking DNA tests these days. You can’t escape the advertisements showing amazing discoveries of long-lost family, previously unknown family origins, and testers with newfound senses of identity.
But what really happens when you take a DNA test? How does it work and what can you expect to find? What test should you take at which company? What does it mean if your sample fails? Why don’t your results look like you think they should?
In our July presentation, speaker Janine Cloud of FamilyTreeDNA will address these questions and many more. She will describe the types of DNA tests and what they’re used for. She will tell you how the DNA testing process actually works and advise you on how to make the most of your results. And most importantly, Janine will provide key insights and strategies as to how to best add DNA testing that will supercharge your own genealogical research.
