A Virtual DNA meeting will be held on October 21, 2021 at 7pm.
Zoom link available in the Members Only area of the website. (Login required.) Non-members: if you'd like to join us, please email our Registrar to request the link.
We are going to try something different for our October DNA Group meeting, and are asking you to participate in a mini workshop based on a webinar introduced by Roberta Estes in the following blog post.
For the month of September, MyHeritage is sponsoring free webinars including the one dealing with this topic at this link. In the October meeting we will share our experiences and compare results. If you experience any difficulty with creating your map, you can always find help at one of our Mentoring sessions on Tuesdays at 1pm.
