Synopsis of presentation on Genetic Genealogy:
This is a general overview of genetics and how it relates to genealogy.  Topics discussed will include basic terminology, the types of testing offered, and how to use it in conjunction with your genealogy research. A knowledge of genetics is not required to attend.

Synopsis of presentation on Lineage Societies:
This presentation will focus on what individuals can do with their research.  Lineage Societies are numerous and not only are a way to honor your heritage but also to connect with other people who share the same history and passions as you.  Participants will be guided through how to select and find a society to what are the best types of documents to submit.


  1. Good for you! Have a wonderful time, and I'm sure people will appreciate your presentations.

  2. Thanks Mariann! It will be a long day, but I get to talk about 2 things I enjoy so it's a win in my book.
