WVGS to host program July 25 on DNA testing

Sunday, July 16, 2017

Genealogy and genetics have become interconnected. DNA can provide insight into your family heritage that cannot be obtained from genealogy research alone. But how do people go about finding out what information is found in their DNA.

On Tuesday, July 25, the Wabash Valley Genealogy Society will offer a free, public program which can help you better understand DNA testing and what is involved in deciphering some of the intriguing family connections found through DNA matches.

The program is titled “Which DNA Test is Right For Me.” The presenter for this program will be Tim Phipps, president of the WVGS and acknowledged DNA expert as it relates to genealogy and family history.

The program will be in the lower level conference rooms at the Vigo County Public Library in Terre Haute. The doors open at 6 p.m. with the presentation running from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Anyone with questions about this or other WVGS programs can find additional information on the WVGS website: www.inwvgs.org.
