DNA dates in 2018

We are pleased to announce that genetic genealogy specialist Blaine Bettinger will be presenting a lecture and workshop back-to-back for Toronto Branch in early April 2018.

Cover of Blaine Bettinger bookBlaine, who is based in New York State, is the author of the long-running blog The Genetic Genealogist. His most recent book, The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Testing, is a go-to reference resource.

The Lecture will be held on Friday 6 April and will be aimed at advanced DNA researchers seeking to step up their analysis with new concepts and evolving tools.

The Workshop, on Saturday 7 April, will be for intermediate DNA researchers. Registrants will learn how to combine their DNA testing with traditional research techniques to explore ancient ancestry, find genetic relatives, and break through brick walls.

Visit our Workshop page for further details as they become available.

If DNA is already in your genealogical toolbox, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to deepen your knowledge and learn from one of the best. If you haven’t yet taken the plunge, but are considering a DNA test, these special events may be an added incentive! So get your DNA testing done and join Blaine Bettinger next April!
