Free Lecture – DNA Kits: Who’s Been Climbing Your Tree?

September 13, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


DNA: the New Way to Meet Your Relatives

A hundred years ago when Ida Caldwell McFaddin researched her family’s genealogy, she may have become frustrated. The methods were not easy at that time; she no doubt painstakingly poured through hundreds, if not thousands of family documents and government records to trace her family ties.

How wonderful that times have changed! We have the internet AND over-the-counter DNA kits to help. Millions of people are racing to buy commercial DNA kits these days which is opening the door for millions to learn about family history, anscestry, and medical information.

Join us this month as we welcome the founder of the world’s first commercial DNA kit, Family Tree DNA. Bennett Greenspan will speak about the new popularity of DNA science and how it’s helping people around the globs to discover their roots.

Come early. We expect a crowd and there is no saving seats. Doors open at 6:00.
