Inaugural meeting of the newly formed DNA SIG - don't miss this - Saturday 06 Feb - 14:00 at WAGS Unit 4, Bayswater

The aim is to collaborate and help one another to interpret and apply their DNA results: helping to confirm their family tree lines, break down “walls”, explore other family connections, as well as being involved in international surname projects and encouraging further exploration of DNA tools.

Guest speaker: Geoff Barber

Topic: "Great-grandmother's Secrets Revealed Through DNA"

Geoff will share his own DNA success story about how he used DNA testing together with traditional archival research to solve a fascinating genealogy puzzle and, in the process, to uncover some intersting family history and meet new overseas cousins.

The use of DNA test results, in combination with good archival practices, is becoming an increasingly important and valuable tool in the genealogist’s toolkit. A number of WAGS members have expressed interest in forming a Genetic Genealogy Special Interest Group, to collaborate and help one another to interpret and apply their DNA results: helping to confirm their family tree lines, break down “walls”, explore other family connections, as well as being involved in international surname projects and encouraging further exploration of DNA tools.

 

Would you be interested in supporting this proposed group and attend their quarterly meetings?
