What's New in Genetic Genealogy?

On May 18th, 2013, there will be a meeting of the Quinte OGS Branch at which John D Reid from the blog Anglo-Celtic Connections, will present a talk about What's New in Genetic Genealogy?

The DNA we each carry in trillions of cells of our body is a natural genealogical record waiting to be read. Understanding based on new discoveries is becoming available to us all through personal DNA tests at ever more reasonable cost offered on a commercial basis.

The presentation will discuss how you can find connections to cousins back a few generations and gain insight into your deep ancestry through autosomal DNA tests, which can be taken equally by men and women.

The talk will take place at Quinte West City Hall Library, 7 Creswell Drive, Trenton, Ontario

On Saturday the 19th of November at 1:00 p.m. at Quinte West City Hall Library, 7 Creswell Drive in Trenton, Ontario, the Quinte Branch of the OGS will host their monthly meeting & AGM.

Rick Roberts from Global Genealogy http://globalgenealogy.com will talk on "Researching Canadian WWI Records Using Online and Traditional Resources".

Discover which Canadian military records are available to help you reveal the roles that individual enlisted Canadians played in World War One, where those records are, how to access them, plus tips and hints for interpreting Canadian military documents. To be discussed are those who served at home and/or overseas, those who applied for service and were rejected, those who returned from war, and those who didn't. A case study, compiled by using Internet-based and physical records, will illustrate effective strategies, research processes, and results.
