Whatcom Gen Society Newsflash

Hello, WGS Friends,

Our group called Ferndale Genies invites you to our July meeting where I will be talking about DNA along with fellow Genie Brooke Nixon.

Date:  Next Monday, July 18 from 1 until 2:30 or 3:30 at the new Ferndale Library in the large meeting room.  That’s at 2125 Main Street.
 We will start right on time at 1:00 skipping introductions.  I attached the handout for the meeting to give you a head start if you want.  It’s 12 pages long but don’t let that scare you.  It’s a resource that will take you into the future.
In Part 1 I will briefly review the intro to genetics and DNA testing that I presented last January.  Part 2 will focus on how to use Ancestry.com DNA and various other websites that process and report on your DNA and matches.  With questions and answers this will continue until 2:30.
From 2:30-3:30 we’ll have “hands on time” to explore the DNA results people have received so far.  You can use your own computer or a library laptop.  Everyone is welcome to stay, watch, and continue our discussion.  Don’t forget to bring your passwords.
We welcome everyone.  Don’t hesitate to call if you have questions.
See you soon,
 Judith Culver
