Special Learning Opportunities

DNA Study Group

The DNA study Group for 2020 will study "Genetic Genealogy in Practice", by Blaine T. Bettinger and Debbie Parker Wayne. This book is available from National Genealogical Society (NGS) or Amazon. Mick Mickelson can order from NGS using the LGS account. If you are not an NGS member you may want to talk to Mick, because the non-member or Amazon price is higher.

The schedule for 2020 will be:

Everyone should read the chapter and work through the end of chapter exercises before the class.

Jan 8 Kickoff meeting - discuss book in general, Chapter one and plan for the year.
