Join us for a day with internationally renowned Blaine Bettinger, “The Genetic Genealogist”. This is an exciting opportunity for active genetic genealogists who are at the intermediate level. If you have already tested your Autosomal DNA, and want to enhance your understanding, then join us for this wonderful workshop.

Join Blaine to explore the intricacies of genetic analysis, and learn how to understand your genetic matches to further your family history and help break down those brick walls!
