DNA SIG
Meets monthly,  7 p.m., third Thursdays, via Zoom. Contact Susan Davis to receive link to meeting. Guests are welcome to attend a few meetings; if you plan to attend regularly, join the society. It will be worth it! The group typically has 15 to 20 attendees who use direct-to-consumer (DTC) DNA tests as genealogy research tools. All skill levels are welcome. Members can see an introductory DNA lecture by Greg Liverman on the Speaker Videos page under Member Log In.
