Using DNA to Discover Your Roots
Linda Parker Magellan

Where once genealogists agonized over "brick wall" problems keeping them from discovering more about their ancestors, we now have technology enabling us to leap over those proverbial research walls. At this Thursday evening's Society meeting, our speaker will introduce us to the possibilities accessible through the use of DNA testing, and examine what can be discovered, thanks now to genetic genealogy.

This Thursday evening's speaker is Linda Parker Magellan, an independent professional Genetic Genealogy consultant who has traveled internationally to assist individuals in discovering their ancestry through the use of DNA testing. Linda enjoys putting the pieces of the puzzle together to solve the mystery of one’s genetic inheritance.   

Linda ordered her first DNA test kit in 2003 and has been hooked ever since.  She now administers several surname projects and has experience with FamilyTreeDNA, 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and The Genographic Project. 

As a founding member of the International Society for Genetic Genealogy, Linda has long regarded education a priority and continues to develop professionally through workshops, conferences, and continuing education coursework. Her area of expertise is in teaching others how to unravel the story in their DNA.

This meeting is open to members of the Society as well as to the public, and is free of charge. Please come early to insure a good parking place, select a seat for the presentation, and enjoy some refreshments during the networking time before the 5:45 start of our Thursday evening meeting.
