January DNA Seminar at the Library

Mark your calendars, grab your winter coat and gloves and plan on attending our DNA Seminar at the Main Library on Saturday, January 25th from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. This event in three one-hour sessions should answer many of the questions you may have about using DNA to enhance your genealogy. We are very lucky to have a Certified Genetic Counselor, Elizabeth Varga, from Nationwide Children's in Columbus. She will help us understand the health results that were part of the 23andMe service. (Note: The FDA has ordered 23andMe to stop providing health results to its customers at this time. Kits purchased after November 22nd are still being processed for genealogical purposes and the raw data produced that can be transferred to other sites).

Invite your friends and come to what is sure to be a great day. Light refreshments will be served. Contact Kathy Reed at if you have any questions.

For those of you with a special interest in this topic, check out the year-end review of some of the major changes in this field that took place in 2013.
