This is reminder for the MoCoGenSo DNA SIG meeting this coming Saturday at 10 am at the Family History Center in Seaside. We will meet in the library (across the hall from the computer room)
Schedule for DNA SIG Meeting:
Kathy Nielsen will share some of her work with Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). (I like to think of mtDNA as the “white part of the egg”.)
Also, Barbara Rae-Venter will give a practice presentation on DNA AND UNCOVERED SECRETS: HELP AND SUPPORT
I have just discovered a great place to help me learn about tricks and techniques regarding DNA testing, using Gedmatch, creating dummy trees, and on and on. Perhaps you can learn from this place too. The only gotcha is that it is a group within FaceBook. Aww… If you are a user of FaceBook and you have or are considering DNA testing for genealogy sake, then go to FaceBook and join the group called:
Genetic Genealogy Tips & Techniques
It is a closed group, you have to name one of the DNA testing companies to get in. It is monitored by Blaine Bettinger. You get new postings whenever they show up. The topics are almost always questions from people — the answers are in the comments. Sure, they won’t all apply to your case, but hang in there! There are over 40,000 members, and your questions are bound to show up! And some really smart people are giving answers!
