Finding Your Information

When researching your family history, you will want to know where to find information. Some of that information is “hidden” on the internet. This session will show you how dig out the information that applies to your own specific family, and will help you find libraries and archives that contain information not available online.

This session will give you a basic understanding of what DNA testing is, explaining what kinds of DNA tests are available, and what they can and cannot tell you. It will cover topics such as finding living relatives today and how far back you might be able to trace your family.
