Have you considered taking a DNA test?  If so, which one?  There are numerous choices and even types of DNA, so which one will be the best for you?  This session will discuss the different types of DNA, different tests and testing companies, and, most importantly, what do you do with the results. There's so much more that DNA can tell you about your family than just your ethnicity. Come and learn some of the basic techniques to begin to organize your DNA results to help find your family.
