Can DNA help your genealogical research? This class is for anyone who has been thinking about taking a DNA test or wondering what to do after taking one. We’ll cover basic terminology, which companies offer autosomal DNA testing, and how to interpret results. Privacy concerns and third-party resources will also be discussed. Ginger Ogilvie of Keep Family History Services will present an online Zoom program for the Midland Genealogical Society meeting tackling these topics.
