Genealogy and DNA
with Susanna Epler
In this introductory overview of genealogy research techniques and DNA testing:
• We will cover how to research and build your family tree using online and traditional resources.
• We will explain the three different types of DNA tests, and demonstrate what your DNA results mean.
• We will then explore and demonstrate ways to use your DNA results to expand and verify your family tree information.
Every class will include lecture, discussion, and hand-on activities. Students are encouraged to bring their laptop if they have one.
Note: This class is 3 weeks, starting January 31.
