Double Dose of DNA for Genealogy

Tuesday, September 17, 2019, 5:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Emily Aulicino, Genetic Genealogist, is coming from Portland to provide two DNA presentations at the September meeting of the Bend Genealogical Society. This special meeting begins at 10:00 a.m. in Williamson Hall on Tuesday, September 17. Emily will begin around 10:45 a.m. give or take a few minutes.

FIRST PRESENTATION – Autosomal DNA: Verify, Correct, Expand

Learn how testing can help you verify and expand your lineage. This presentation is suitable for everyone, even those who do not use DNA in their research. Questions are welcome.

This presentation ends around 11:45 am to noon, when we will take a break. If you need to leave, we understand. Bring a sack lunch, if desired, and we’ll chat with Emily as we refuel and rest a bit. We'll start again about 12:15 p.m.

SECOND PRESENTATION – Beyond Just Matching with Autosomal DNA

Learn how to analyze your matches with chromosome mapping, and to organize common ancestors, all with a spreadsheet.

DNA Painter is visual way of doing chromosome mapping. Emily will show you how to analyze the same segment data that you put in Painter with a spreadsheet. Both ways allow you to study the segments of your matches. Whether you use a spreadsheet or Painter for chromosome mapping is a personal preference.

Plus, learn several tips about the dos & don’ts of contacting matches. More advanced talk, but not too daunting!

Come for either presentation, or stay for both of them. Enjoy this special DNA learning opportunity on September 17. The second presentation will end before 1:30 p.m.

The Bend Genealogical Society (BGS) is for anyone interested in their family history, beginners and experienced researchers alike. We want to help you.
