SGS Fall Seminar - October 18th!
DNA: THE NEW GENEALOGY FRONTIER
Can your genealogy research benefit by DNA testing? Who should you test? What test is best?

Diahan will present on three topics for the day, all geared to a broad level of knowledge by the members of the audience:
1. Ruling the World with Mitochondrial DNA
2. YDNA Testing is EVERYONE (yes, you!)
