DNA Presentation at Van Zandt County GS - Saturday, Feb. 25

I'll be giving a presentation on DNA this Saturday, February 25, 2:00 p.m. in Canton, Texas, at the Van Zandt County Genealogical Society meeting. Stop by and visit if you are in the area. Van Zandt is a very active genealogical society with a great library and a lot of useful publications for those with ancestors from the area.

Here's the information from their flyer with my bio section removed:

Topic: GATA GACC! DNA and Genetic Genealogy Today

This is a general introduction to using DNA testing for genealogy and where
we are today. It covers Y-DNA for the direct paternal line, mitochondrial
DNA for the direct maternal line, and autosomal DNA for the other ancestral
lines. You will learn how to use the test results to maximize the
contribution to genealogical research goals, what DNA testing is and how to
obtain the tests, and which tests can be used for ethnic studies based on
the current technology.
