“Genealogy has taken a leap forward in recent times, spurred in part by a plethora of television series such as “Who Do You Think You Are?” and others, quite a few of which are sponsored by one of the leading DNA testing companies.
“William’s talk will illustrate the importance of the traditional souces for family history research, which are complimented and quite often corroborated by DNA test results and subsequent matches detected.
“Everyone is welcome.”
