Speaking on DNA - 9 Jan 2012, Newton, Texas

I will be presenting an introduction to using DNA testing for genealogy at the Deep East Texas Archaeological Society meeting.

Date: Monday, January 9, at 7:00 p.m., The society serves refreshment at 6:30 p.m. before the meeting starts

Place: Newton County Museum History Center and Genealogical Library, 213 E. Court St., Newton, Texas

This 30-minute session is a basic introduction to how to use Y-DNA, mitochondrial DNA, and autosomal DNA testing for genealogical research purposes.

I gave this shortened version of the presentation at the Texas General Land Office, Save Texas History seminar last October. I was able to do the full 90-minute version at the Texas State Genealogical Society conference in November. Last July I was able to present an all-day seminar at the North Texas Genealogical Society in Wichita Falls. There is so much information to convey on how to use DNA for genealogy that you can fill up an entire week if everyone could make that much time to listen and learn. Check out my website for more information on the different DNA sessions and reference information on how to use your own DNA results.
