A program of four sessions with excellent speakers, vendors, and door prizes.
DNA Inheritance Principles Explained - Genetic genealogy makes more sense if you understand the building blocks. This lecture will revisit basic genetic principles you need to understand your results. Presented by Shannon Combs-Bennett.
Road Blocks and Detours - Eva Slezak of the Enoch Pratt Library will present tips to find that missing branch or leaf on the family tree and how to avoid potential road blocks and/or detours in your research.
DNA Test Comparison and What You Can Do With Your Test Results - Most people don't know exactly what they could get from DNA testing. Shannon Combs-Bennett will discuss various DNA tests on the market, who sells them, and how you can use your results in your genealogy research.
21st Century Resources vs 20th Century Resources - Chuck Mason will discuss computers, the internet, search engines, data bases and websites, books, CDs, microfilm, microfiche and original records. He will present how to develop a plan to use sources from both centuries - and then what to do if neither source works out.
