Future Meetings

Tuesday, May 9, 2017 - Ron Wencer - Lederhosen, Kilts, and other Misunderstandings: Can your DNA really help you find the right family trees in the forest?

What does Ancestry’s ethnicity assessment mean for an Eastern European?

  • Value and limits of suggested connections

  • Improving your chances
  • Using your results to direct your research
