Our DNA group aims to help you understand the uses and benefits of DNA testing as it applies to your own family research and to support your research by sharing information and expertise about how to interpret your test results.
At our quarterly meetings we have a guest speaker who shares their own DNA success stories, focussing on how DNA has been useful in solving a particular family tree puzzle or helping to break down a brick wall. There will also be a technical presentation that explores some aspect of DNA testing and how to read and apply DNA results to your genealogy project, as well as exploring the many new tools for analysing DNA. The meetings provide a friendly and informal forum for asking questions about DNA and helping members to understand their own results and how to apply them to their own family tree research.
Through our group we also aim to become active members of the wider Australian and international genetic genealogy community for networking and exchanging ideas.
Anyone is welcome to come along to our meeting and join our mailing list; however, if you are a WAGS member, you can also access the "Members Only" section which will provide valuable resources such as how-to guides and videos of presentations. Further details are available by contacting the convenor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
