DNA for Genealogy is a Shared Interest Group (SIG) open to members of Clarke-Oconee Genealogical Society (COGS) and Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Georgia (OLLI@UGA). You must be a member of at least one of these groups to participate.
The textbook is Blaine T. Bettinger’s The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy, Second Edition. This group usually meets once a month on the third Sunday in Multi-purpose Room C of the Athens-Clarke County Library, but is currently meeting online through Zoom.
The purpose of the DNA for Genealogy SIG is to develop a basic understanding of using DNA in our family history research and to grow our knowledge of how to solve genealogical problems using the information from DNA.
Gene Wengert and Laura W. Carter are co-coordinating this group. Contact Laura (genlibrarianga at gmail dot com) for more information or to join the DNA for Genealogy SIG.
