Tri-City Genealogical Society Creating a DNA plan for Geoff’s brick Wall

Please join us for Tri-City Genealogical Society’s December General meeting at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, December 14.  The meeting will be held on Zoom.  See below for the link.  The featured speaker will be Diahan Southard who presented at the TCGS seminar in Richland several years ago.  The December talk will be entitled Creating a DNA plan for Geoff’s brick wall.  “Despite his best efforts, Geoff Rasmussen’s long standing brick wall hasn’t come down yet. John Williams, born in New York City between 1840-1854, was the son of John Williams. Family tradition says that “he was orphaned at the age of 10 and shifted around until he was 16″. Geoff thinks it’s time to add a little genetic genealogy to his plan. On hand to help him develop this DNA plan is DNA expert Diahan Southard. Join us and learn techniques that you can apply to your own family tree.”

  Looking forward to Wednesday, January 11, 2023, TCGS member Veronica Anguiano will be presenting on Cool New Features in FamilySearch.  Presentation will be on Zoom.  Link to be sent out next month. 

  Planning continues for further speakers in 2023 with the intention to have the presentations continue to occur on the second Wednesday of the month.  Please mark your calendar.

  Everyone is encouraged to join and / or renew their membership in TCGS.  The links for renewal are on the TCGS web site at or
