Back by popular demand, this genealogy workshop helps demystify the practice of using genetic testing to trace family roots. Advances in DNA research have had huge implications for the field of genealogy. Yet, with the growing number of companies and options, it can be difficult to know what test is best for you. In this workshop, Genealogist Melanie McComb of American Ancestors/New England Historic Genealogical Society will discuss the types of genetic tests available to family historians, the genealogical problems the tests can—and cannot—assist you with, how to choose the right one(s) to further your family history research, and what tools are available to help you interpret your results. Space is limited and registration is required. To register over the phone, call 603-228-6688.
