DNA Group News and Topics of Interest
1. The next DNA meeting will be on Thursday, December 5, 2019 at 7 pm at the LDS Church.
this meeting we will 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
have members with a range of experience levels and we want to
accommodate everyone, so come prepared to share your experiences and ask your questions no matter no matter what level you are at. If
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. You can also email me, Vernon Smith, to register your interest so that we can be prepared.
