DNA Interest Group Meeting
Saturday, July 30

10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the SCGS Library

What is New in Ancestral Origin Predictions?
Direct-to-consumer DNA tests often include “ethnic” estimates. However, these results often differ between the test companies. First degree relatives in a single family often get different predictions from the same company. Kathy Johnston will explore these ancestral origin predictions from the perspective of a genealogist. She will demonstrate what is available at each of the three main DNA companies used by genealogists, 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and Family Tree DNA.

The public is welcome!

$5.00 donation is suggested for attendance. Individualized help will be available after the formal presentation for those who want to order DNA tests or who have received DNA results and need help managing their personal page or interpreting their results. Brown bag or join us for pizza for an additional $5.00.

Five Reasons the Records Aren't in the Courthouse
by George G. Morgan

U.S. courthouse records have been damaged, destroyed, moved, or stored over the centuries. Prepare yourself in advance for on-site and online research by consulting authoritative sources. Learn why records may not be available in the courthouse, what may have happened to them, and where they (or replacements or substitutes) may exist today.

George G. Morgan is president of Aha! Seminars, Inc., and an internationally recognized genealogy expert who presents in the U.S., Canada, England, on cruise ships, and webinars. He is the prolific author of hundreds of articles for magazines, journals, newsletters, in genealogical publications, and at online sites internationally. His twelfth book, the fourth edition How to Do Everything: Genealogy, was released in January 2015. He is co-host of The Genealogy GuysSM Podcast, the longest running genealogical podcast with thousands of listeners worldwide.
