DNA Workshops

Do you have the genealogy bug? Are you interested in knowing where your ancestors came from? The Historical Society and GenSeekers is sponsoring a DNA Workshop event to help unravel the mystery of DNA research that can add information to your family tree. The workshops will be held over 3 meetings and the cost is a very affordable price, free. Free will donations are accepted to help underwrite the operating costs of the museum.

What will be covered?

Workshop #1

  • How do I do a DNA test?
  • What options are available to me?
  • What can I expect when the results are in?

Workshop #2

  • What now?
  • What is a cM?
  • Who are my matches?
  • Examples from Case Studies
  • Next steps

Workshop #3

  • What other tools are available?
  • What is Gedmatch.com?
  • Digging deep
  • Looking at the results for better understanding

The each workshop will be held twice if there is enough interest, during the day and an evening event. You need not attend all the events but instead can pick and choose which event you want to attend. The facilitor, Pat Hannan, has more than 25 years of family history research and added DNA testing to her toolkit about 5 years ago. While Pat is not an expert, she certainly is an advanced researcher and has helped resolve some "brick walls", made some discoveries and even solved a couple of adoptee / parent unknown cases.

If you have DNA results and don't understand them, during Workshop #2 and #3, Pat will be available to review of few of them and offer up suggesetions or advice on where to go next.

To help us plan for this event, please call the museum or complete the online contact us form and tell us, that you are interested in attending our DNA workshops. These workshops will be held at the museum in the meeting room.
