GENETIC GENEALOGY QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION.....CLARE ROOTS SOCIETY 19 MAY, 2016




CLARE ROOTS SOCIETY MEETING

8pm. Thursday 19th May
Old Ground Hotel


Genetic Genealogy Question and Answer Session.
Have you sent a sample of your DNA for analysis or are you still considering doing so?  Twenty people sent off samples after the November 2015 Clare Roots Society monthly meeting, addressed by Genetic Genealogist of the Year, Maurice Gleeson.  

Six months on, many of them are still trying to make sense of the lists of probable distant cousins and other results that have now come back to them.  Clare Roots Society's next monthly meeting in the Maguire Suite of the Old Ground Hotel at 8pm on Thursday 19 May will be a follow-up session.  

If you have any questions about your DNA results, or genetic genealogy in general, please bring them along to this meeting, where Society chairperson and avid genetic genealogist Paddy Waldron will attempt to answer them.  

Questions can be e-mailed in advance to chairperson@clareroots.org.  

For best results, those who have already received DNA results may want to join the Clare Roots project at FamilyTreeDNA.com and copy the results to GEDmatch.com in advance of the meeting.  DNA kits will be available at the meeting.
