Instructor: Annette Graham.  DNA has become another avenue for researching our Ancestors.  Getting the results of your DNA testing has sometimes caused confusion and created many questions. This one-on-one program with Annette is designed to help you interpret your results and how to use your DNA results with your research.
 
There are 3, one-hour sessions offered on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Registration can be made by calling SAGHS at 210-342-5242. The one-hour sessions are: 10-11 am, 11 am-12 pm, and 12-1 pm.  You will need to bring your DNA Access Codes for the DNA program you used.  You should bring your laptop for a better DNA understanding but it is not necessary to attend the program.
