Genealogical Society of Rockland County Meeting - Open to the Public

DNA Testing and Genealogy with Nora Galvin

What can a DNA test tell me? What does "autosomal DNA testing" mean? What can't it do for me? How accurate are DNA tests? Nora Galvin returns to continue lecturing on how DNA testing can be used for genealogy work. Bring your questions! Speaker Nora Galvin has a Bachelor of Science degree (Biology) from The Ohio State University and a Masters of Arts (Liberal Studies) from Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT. Her science background gives her the ability to combine DNA technology and conventional genealogical research and to help audiences understand the complexities of genetic genealogy.

A brief meeting of the GSRC will be followed by the program.

Drop in for coffee and cake while the kids have some free play time! This unstructured program is an opportunity to meet with your neighbors, have a chat, and let the little ones get some socializing time in! Parents must supervise their children, as there will be no formal program run by a librarian. We will have age-appropriate toys, puzzles, etc. available for the group. There is limited space, so please come on time or a little early. Hope to see you there!
