Ring in the New Year with the January 2017 Meeting

Posted by hrgenealogy on December 18, 2016

What is the latest development in genealogy beside digitization of records these days? Why DNA testing, of course. Ring in the New Year by joining the Highlands Ranch Genealogical Society on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 for a presentation of “DNA Testing,” by Deena Coutant, HRGS member and owner of DigiDeena Consulting. This is the first of a two-part series on the uses of DNA in genealogy.

dna-imageDNA analysis is one of the fastest growing genealogy research tools today, with the capability to break decade-old brick walls.  In her presentation, Deana will cover the three major types of genetic genealogy tests (Y DNA, mitochondrial DNA and autosomal DNA) and what type of information is provided or answered by each test.  She’ll also give us an overview and comparison of the three major testing companies and introduce the newly-released Genetic Genealogy Standards and show us how DNA testing now fits into the Genealogical Proof Standard.

Arrive early at 6:30 p.m. for snacks and conversation with fellow genealogists. You never know who might have the key to your most vexing research problems.

Erring on the side of safety, we decided to cancel our December meeting due to a forecast snow and icy roads. And winter has just begun. Once again, we ask that, if snow is in the forecast the day of the January meeting, you please check this website or our Facebook page for updates.

See you next year!
