The next meeting will be on Thursday, April 19, 2018 at 7 pm at the LDS Church.In the first part of the meeting we will again have an open forum where members will be able to ask questions and share their stories of successes or difficulties that they have encountered while pursuing Genetic Genealogy. Come prepared to participate.
We have members with a range of experience levels and we want to accommodate everyone, so come and ask your questions or share your experiences no matter what level you are at.
you have something that you would like explained, do not be afraid to
ask. We encourage everyone to speak out, no matter what level of
experience they have. Those with more experience love the opportunity to
discuss these issues, and we all learn something.
In the second half of the meeting Nancy Evans will present an Introduction to Using MyHeritageDNA.
If you have already taken a DNA test with another vendor, you can upload your raw DNA data to MyHeritage for free. MyHeritage has recently made some big improvements in the features that they offer and Nancy will explain what you can now do once you have uploaded your DNA or taken their test.
