DNA Group Meeting

  • June 14, 2018
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • LDS Church, 220 North San Pedro Rd., San Rafael

The next meeting will be on Thursday, June 14, 2018 at 7 pm at the LDS Church.

Note the change from the 3rd Thursday to the 2rd Thursday.
This is just for the month of June.

In the first part of the meeting we will again have an open forum where members will be able to ask questions and share their stories of successes or difficulties that they have encountered while pursuing Genetic Genealogy. Come prepared to participate.

We have members with a range of experience levels and we want to accommodate everyone, so come and ask your questions or share your experiences no matter what level you are at.

If you have something that you would like explained, do not be afraid to ask. We encourage everyone to speak out, no matter what level of experience they have. Those with more experience love the opportunity to discuss these issues, and we all learn something.

In the second half of the meeting we will probably have a discussion of DNAGedcom and how to use it to deal with your matches.

Useful links are below. If you are new to this site, read the first few.

We meet each month (mostly) to discuss all aspects of Genetic Genealogy, and to provide a forum for discussion as well as time for answering any related questions.
