Bobski Masson

Bob "Bobski" Masson presents:
"Expanding Your Genealogy Research with DNA"

Description: You have a lot of relatives out there who can help you with your family genealogy — you just don't know who they are! A DNA test will help you find those relatives, and tell you much about where you came from. Let's explore what DNA is, how it "works", and what you can learn from your DNA. This presentation is geared towards individuals who may be considering a DNA test or have taken one and want to know more about how it can help their genealogy research.

He managed accounts related to the Human Genome Project and witnessed the first draft of the human genome sequence in 2001.
