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.
