Over the past decade, genetic genealogy graduated from pioneering research to one more tool in our family history arsenal, but just as the number of us taking DNA tests grew, so have our genetic options.
The historical society is very pleased to announce that renowned genealogist, author, and TV and radio guest, Megan Smolenyak, will discuss Trace Your Roots With DNA at the annual meeting. Megan has appeared on Good Morning America, the Today Show, the Early Show, CNN, NPR, and BBC. In additon to consulting on shows ranging from Who Do You Think You Are? to Top Chef, Megan is the author of six books, a Huffington Post contributor, a cold case researcher for the Army, NCIS and the FBI, and former Chief Family Historian and spokesperson for Ancestry.com.
Please join us on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 to learn how DNA testing can be used to shed light on the paternal and maternal branches of your family tree. In addition, new, and in many respects revolutionary, autosomnal tests can reveal previously unknown facets hidden anywhere in your family's past. (P.S. Talk delivered in plain English!)
Light refreshments will be served. For more information, please call the museum at 973-564-9519.
