Yvonne will discuss how genetic genealogy (using DNA results with traditional genealogy) and elements of the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) can be used to crumble brick walls and assert proof that your ancestors are truly yours. This presentation is geared toward beginners and intermediates in genetic genealogy. Join us at 10:30 for coffee and light refreshments, and the presentation will begin at 11:00 a.m. This program is sponsored by the Friends of Lumpkin County Library. We’re giving away door prizes, including TWO AncestryDNA Kits! You must register by Thursday, October 4th in order to attend. Call us at 706-864-3668 to sign up.
