1:00 p.m., Eureka Library, DNA as a Tool for Genealogy Research

Saturday, June 3, 2017

Genealogist Michael Cooley explains how to add a new tool to your research: DNA. Every genealogist runs into brick walls, when the research fails to turn up anything new about an ancestor. The lineage just comes to a screeching halt. If this has happened to you, not to worry: Michael Cooley offers hope. For, as he says, “It turns out that ancestry is archived in every cell of the body. We just need to understand how to read it. This brief introduction to genetic genealogy will help to explain the hows, whys, and wheres in using this tool.
