We are going through the book,
Tracing Your Ancestors Using DNA: A Guide for Family Historians
We will be going through this chapter by chapter, and we hope that this approach will appeal to a wide audience, including those who have yet to try DNA testing as an adjunct to their genealogy research.
For the next Virtual meeting on Thursday, December 15, 2022 at 7 pm, we will be discussing Chapter 2 of the book, which deals with
"The Ethical and Legal Aspects of Genetic Genealogy"
If you want to get the maximum benefit from the meetings, it would be a good idea to purchase the book and read the relevant chapter before the meeting.
