DNA – A Practical Guide

Have you been thinking of taking a DNA test, but unsure how it can help with your research or who to test with?  Have you taken a DNA test and are not sure how to work with the results?  

In this presentation James will be looking at the different types of genealogical DNA tests that are available and how they can help you in a totally practical way.  He will be using his own family tree as an example.

This talk will steer clear of the science behind DNA testing and explore which companies do which tests, how to get the best value for money and where you can turn to for help online with interpreting your results.

Free parking.
Free entry for members, non-members are invited to make a £5 donation towards costs.
