 7th December 2019 


Part 1 of our meeting was our guest speaker - Neil Bradley - who gave a very interesting (and inspiring) talk on his Family History and genetic genealogy journey. 
We then had a Panel and General discussion about the recent DNA Downunder Conferences that were held in Perth and Sydney. Attendees from the 3 day conference in Sydney gave their views on what they had learnt and shared information on new and emerging software and genetic genealogy techniques. 
We held a Raffle with the prize being an autographed copy of Blaine T Bettinger's very recent edition of  "The Family Tree  Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy".
