Presentation on Genetics and Genealogy This Monday!

This coming Monday I will present the following lecture in Fredericksburg, Virginia.  I hope you will be able to come! If you do, please introduce yourself, I would love to meet anyone who has followed my blog.

The presentation will be an overview on how genealogists can use DNA as a tool for their research.  You don't need to know anything about DNA testing, or genealogy, to attend. So, feel free to bring a friend or just come and listen.

Looking forward to seeing you there.  Below is the press release:
The Friends of the Central Rappahannock Regional Library will host Shannon Bennett, a biologist and genealogist, at their Annual Meeting on Monday, October 28, at 7:00 pm. Ms. Bennett will reveal how DNA research is changing the world of genealogy. Genetic genealogy has taken off in the last decade as DNA sequencing and access to testing has become easier and more affordable. Although the DNA results currently used by genealogists will not give a definitive answer to your heritage, it can help validate possibilities. DNA test results have led to more than one person validating a hunch and proving a connection that was only theoretical.
The meeting is open to the public and will be held at the Headquarters library, 1201 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg. Refreshments will be served.
