Tues. 8/7 @ 10 AM: DNA Testing - The Basics @ Kingwood

Have you ever wanted to know which DNA test to choose? What to expect? In addition, what to do with the results?  Discover more about your family’s past with DNA testing for genealogy. 

DNA testing is commonly used to help gain a better understanding of our deep and recent roots, to verify or break down genealogical findings and to connect with unknown relatives who can help fill out the family tree.

Join us on Tuesday, August 7, 2018, at 10:00 am for DNA Testing: The Basics with Genealogist Devon Noel Lee.
