Gail Colby, Coordinator
The DNA Special Interest Group (SIG) is a forum for WHAGS members to meet and learn about DNA and its use in genealogical research. We will learn together and help each other solve any DNA-related mysteries. Members of all levels of DNA knowledge are welcome to learn and help other members.
In the SIG we will work our way through the book Genetic Genealogy in Practice by Blaine T. Bettinger and Debbie Parker Wayne. Meetings are normally held the 1st Tuesday of the month at 10am via Zoom.
Next meeting: Tuesday, Nov 7th, 10:00 am, via Zoom
This month's topic: A redux of DNAGedcom and feedback from members who tried it; a discussion on genealogical DNA sites and their status; and an overview of Y-DNA looking towards a more in-depth dive into Y-DNA and how it can be used in genealogy. It is quickly becoming an important tool in the genealogical toolbox. Gail will be attending a genetic genealogy conference sponsored by FTDNA, so expect some news from that event!
Please visit the DNA SIG page in the Members Only area for more information, copies of past and current handouts, and an active Zoom link to our meetings.
