Workshop: Using DNA in Family History Research -- THIS WORKSHOP IS SOLD OUT
Advances in DNA research over the last decades have had huge implications for the field of genealogy. Yet, with the growing number of companies and options, it can be difficult to know what test is best for you. In this workshop Tom Dwyer from the New England Historic Genealogical Society will discuss the types of genetic tests available to family historians, the genealogical problems the tests can—and cannot—assist you with, and ultimately how to choose the right ones(s) to further your family history research. The cost for this workshop is $35 for members of either the New Hampshire Historical Society or the New England Historic Genealogical Society and $50 for nonmembers.

The presentation will be given by Rhonda McClure of the New England Historic Genealogical Society.
