Tracing Your Roots With DNA
Learn how DNA testing can be used to shed light on the paternal and maternal branches of your family tree.
Over the past decade, genetic genealogy graduated from pioneering research to one more tool in our family history arsenal, but just as the number of us taking DNA tests has grown, so have our genetic options.
Renowned genealogist, author and TV and radio guest, Megan Smolenyak, will discuss Trace Your Roots With DNA at the Millburn-Short Hills Historical Society's upcoming annual meeting. Smolenyak has appeared on Good Morning America, the Today Show, the Early Show, CNN, NPR and BBC. In additon to consulting on shows ranging from Who Do You Think You Are? to Top Chef, Smolenyak is the author of six books, a Huffington Post contributor, a cold case researcher for the Army, NCIS and the FBI, and former Chief Family Historian and spokesperson for Ancestry.com.
Please join the historical society on Tuesday, June 5, to learn how DNA testing can be used to shed light on the paternal and maternal branches of your family tree. In addition, new, and in many respects revolutionary, autosomnal tests can reveal previously unknown facets hidden anywhere in your family's past. (P.S. Talk delivered in plain English!)
Light refreshments will be served. To make reservations or for more information, please call the museum at 973-564-9519. For more information about using DNA to research your family tree, visit http://www.honoringourancestors.com.
