16 November 2019 PGS Lecture Series

with Annette Burke Lyttle

Program is preceded at 10:00 AM by a Computers in
Genealogy Q&A session. Free and open to the public.

Note that this is longer than our usual monthly programs–the program consists of two presentations. The event goes over
lunch, so bring a brown bag or use the Bookmark Cafe .

The first talk is about a major early road that your ancestors may have used. If they did not use the road personally, they were probably affected by its development. The second talk is about a specific group that chose to migrate at a specific point in time to a specific place. You may be directly affected by that migration, but if not, the process of tracing the migration and researching its participants is applicable to any group.

Learn how to leverage your admixture results, the reports from your testing company, and the Shared Matches tool to slim down your match list and begin making genealogical discoveries with your DNA test results.
