Linda Forrest will be the featured speaker at next week’s SGS meeting. Her presentation topic is “Autosomal DNA: Understanding and Using Your Ancestry.com Results.” Ms. Forrest’s interest in genetic genealogy began with her husband’s Y-DNA test in 2007, as previous efforts to research his paternal line had failed. Test results showed his father’s original surname was not Forrest. By 2012 autosomal testing made it possible to identify his ancestors and connect with living cousins. Ms. Forrest now regularly teaches classes on genetic genealogy. You won’t want to miss this presentation!
July 19th, 7:00 p.m. in the Bromley Room, Siuslaw Public Library
