When Your Family History Meets Technology
Some people have very specific reasons for tracing their family tree. Others jump into family history research without giving it much thought. What should be the first steps when considering a DNA test? What does a DNA test tell you about yourself?
We will hear from local speakers William Reger, a Russian History professor at ISU and at Parkland, and Sharon McFarland who will answer these questions and more! The March luncheon will highlight the basics of using ancestry.com and how to use Ancestry Family Tree.
