Monthly program


Location: River Park Church,
3818 - 14A Street SW (map)
Next Meeting: Monday, June 1,

7-9 p.m.
Speaker: Linda & Lorna, DNA SIG
Topic: DNA Testing For Genealogical Research


June’s program will be a talk from members of the recently formed DNA SIG who will tell us about DNA testing, what we can expect to find out and what they have achieved through their genealogical testing.


For many of us, mitochondria is just a word that we had to remember to pass Biology 30.  This talk from our SIG members will introduce us to the genealogical uses of DNA and give us real-life examples of what can be achieved in our genealogy with this technology.
