January’s meeting will be associated with a book study using: Genetic Genealogy in Practice, by Blaine T. Bettinger and Debbie Parker Wayne. Chapter 1 on Basic Genetics (& study group overview) will be discussed.
“Genetic Genealogy in Practice, the first workbook on genetic genealogy, the book provides family historians and genealogists who have just begun to explore genetic genealogy practical, easy to understand information that they can apply to their research. Readers learn the basic concepts of genetic genealogy. They then build on that knowledge as they study the testing, analysis, and application of Y-DNA, X-DNA, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), and autosomal DNA (atDNA) to reach and support genealogical conclusions. Each chapter includes exercises with answer keys for hands-on practice. 2016 208 pp. Paperback National Genealogical Society”
Everyone needs to have access to the book so they can study the chapter and work through the exercises before to prepare for each study group meeting. The study group will review the key material from the scheduled chapter and discuss the exercises each meeting.
