Presentation: “I Have DNA Tested – Now What?"
by Katherine Hope Borges
Katherine co-founded and is Director of the International Society of Genetic Genealogists, which promotes and educates about genetic genealogy to over 8,000 members in 70 countries.
She will describe the types of tests (Y-DNA, Mitochondrial DNA, and Autosomal DNA), what they can reveal, and where to get them.
In particular she will be covering what you can expect to find out from the results of these tests and how that applies to your genealogy.
Through ISOGG, Katherine has increased professional standards in the practice, research, and discussion of relevant issues in DNA testing, interpretation, and ethics. She organized a speakers bureau and has given many presentations on genetic genealogy to groups across the United States and in the United Kingdom. She administers several surname, regional, and haplogroup DNA projects.
She is a member of the Southern California Genealogical Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, and Colonial Dames of the XVII Century.
About our Meetings:
The Genealogical Society General meetings are open to the public, with no admission fee. Feel free to drop in! Bring your friends as everyone is welcome. Come early and ask your burning genealogical questions of other members before the meeting.
We meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month, with a couple of exceptions. November's meeting is held on the 3rd Wednesday, due to Thanksgiving. There is no general meeting in May, due to our Annual Picnic, nor in December, due to the holidays and our Winter Holiday Party.
Annually, several of our regularly scheduled meetings have a certain focus: April, we hold our Annual General Meeting and Elections (but there's usually a presentation also); May of each year we hold an Anniversary Celebration or Annual Picnic; and in September, we have a workshop.
