Family History Forum

Join us for our next Family History Forum, Monday, March 27, 7pm at the downtown public library in the main meeting room.

Our topic for this month is:  DNA – an Exciting Tool for Genealogists:  Discussion of types of DNA tests, testing companies and how DNA testing can be useful for genealogy.  We will try to de-mystify DNA and answer your questions regarding if you should pursue DNA testing to further your family history plus some ideas on how to interpret your results once you have tested.  Speakers:  Claire Smith-Burns and Barb MacWilliams. 

If you are scratching your head over DNA, this is the workshop for you!  Also, if you’ve been involved in DNA testing, we’d love to hear from you.  Come early to use the KDGS Family & Local History Resource Centre – there’s lots of new material on our shelves as well as other great resources to help you with your research! Parking is plentiful and free after 6pm in the Library Parkade.  Note:  the driveway into the Parkade is now open (but you must exit the way you came in) – no more driving along the sidewalks!!

Everyone Welcome!  Free
