Genealogy, DNA Testing, & Medical Family Trees

Saturday, March 31, 2012

1 – 4 pm

Today’s DNA test results can reveal a great deal of information about kinship and medical predispositions. This course will help you understand testing options, choose the best testing companies, review resources for analyzing and posting the test results, and learn how to incorporate the information into your kinship and medical family histories. This could be one of the most valuable gifts of information you give to yourself, to your children, and to other relatives.

Marsha Peterson-Maass is a Member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and has taught numerous seminars at the Newberry.
