OGS Webinar: Using AncestryDNA with your Family History


On the first Thursday of every month, the Ontario Genealogical Society hosts an  education webinar.  This month, Lesley Anderson will be presenting a webinar entitled ‘Using AncestryDNA with your Family History’.   The presentation will begin at 7pm EST on May 3 and registration is required.

Lesley says: “Do you want to know about your personal story? Where your deep roots came from? Perhaps you are just curious to know what the results might be? Whatever your starting point AncestryDNA will reveal more of your own story and it’s amazingly helpful to genealogy research.

By capturing a person’s unique genetic data, AncestryDNA can provide customers with a break-down of their genetic ethnicity, as well as find genetic living cousins, confirm existing research and relationships and overcome brick walls or dead-ends in their family history research. When coupled with Ancestry’s billions of historical records, millions of family trees and strong member community, AncestryDNA will enable family enthusiasts and novices alike to discover even more about their own past!”

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity:   REGISTER HERE for Thursday’s webinar
