Guest Speaker 6 Mar 2018; Grahame Thom: The Role of DNA in Family History Research

KILMORE HISTORICAL SOCIETY GENERAL MEETING
TUESDAY 6 MARCH 2018

 

There was a time when the letters “DNA” meant nothing to most of us – but now it is common knowledge that DNA is what we are all made up of. And that is what makes it so fascinating.

At the next general meeting of the Historical Society, our chief researcher, Grahame Thom will speak on the topic “Is DNA useful in family history research?” A question many of us will have asked but not had an answer.

Graeme has recently had his DNA tested by three different family history companies. His decision was made as being a family historian he felt it would be good to have his DNA recorded for use by future generations; to see what the results revealed as to the origins of his paternal and maternal lines and to see if any matches to other persons who had been tested were revealed.

Everyone is welcome to come along on Tuesday 6 March at 7.30 pm at the Kilmore Courthouse to learn more – and the answers to the questions that Grahame posed for himself.

The meeting will begin at 7:30 and end at approximately 9 – 9:30, with time for questions and general business.

Supper will be served after the meeting and all are welcome to participate.
