Are you thinking of doing a DNA test, but find the choices confusing? Have you done a test and need some help making sense of the results? Join us for an introductory program on DNA testing and genetic genealogy.
Tim Phipps, an acknowledged expert in DNA testing, will present “Which DNA Test is Right for You? A Layman’s Guide to Genealogical DNA Testing” at 7pm on September 18, 2017 at the Edgar County Historical Museum Annex, 408 N. Main St.
The presentation will be an overview of DNA testing in genealogy, explaining what each test can reveal and outlining the offerings of major DNA testing companies.
Tim Phipps is a native of Terre Haute who has researched his family’s history for nearly twenty years and has also researched Civil War history in Parke County, where his family settled in the 1830’s. For the past seven years, he has studied the role of DNA testing in traditional genealogical research.
This program is hosted by Edgar County Genealogical Society. Everyone interested in family history is welcome.
