10:00-11:30 am ~ Irish Research Group leprechaun standing

Topic:"Favorite Irish Research Sites"

Bring your laptops to review Irish research sites.

Noon ~ The Computer Tech & DNA Research Group

We have combined the two topics as there is great interest in DNA Research. However, we will continue to respond to current needs in the Tech department. This will be a more self-guided discussion group with topics chosen by the group.

This month we will begin by discussing Chapter 1 of the book "Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy".

Feel free to bring your lunch. It could be helpful to bring your laptops. Any questions, please contact either Judi Lewis or Lorna Wick5

New SIG* Information

Irish Research Group

It's official - We have a new Special Interest Group devoted to Irish research. This group will meet every month at the County Library at 10:00 am. The purpose of this group is the advancement of their research in Irish Genealogy. Marilyn Fullam is the organizer and you can contact her for any questions at 588-9873.

Computer Tech & DNA Group

On November 13, the former Computer Tech group met and approved the re-forming of the group to include DNA research and discussions. Initially we will have an emphasis on DNA, but are open to discussions and or presentations on Technical issues as they arise. It was agreed that they would each purchase an excellent book on DNA research by Blaine Bettinger titled "Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy" and published by Family Tree. They will be discussing the first Chapter at the January meeting. It was also suggested by our money lady that we use our Amazon Smile account for the purchase! Just checked online prices and they have a very good Kindle edition with large diagrams for $9.90 and the paperback for $20.36.
