Y-DNA and Genealogy

The Middlesex Genealogical Society and the Darien Library will present a free genealogy program "Y-DNA and Genealogy." with Peter Biggins, on Saturday, October 6th at 2:00 - 3:30pm, at the Darien Library, 1441 Post Road, Darien, CT.

Discover your paternal ancestry, or that of any male in your family tree. The Y chromosome passes almost unchanged from father to son. Male ancestors carried their Y-DNA line along their migrations, allowing you to trace your paternal ancestry by Y-DNA testing. Last November, we looked at all kinds of DNA testing. This presentation focuses on just Y-DNA. It seeks to explain the ways that your Y-DNA, or that of a relative, can help you in your genealogical research and expand your horizons. Included is information on types of Y-DNA tests and how to select a testing organization based on your objectives. Y-DNA is no substitute for genealogical research, but the presentation shows how it can be helpful. Y-DNA can confirm or deny your genealogical research. It may be able to break down a brick wall. It can explain a surname. It can take your genetic pedigree back thousands of years. It may connect a modern pedigree with an ancient pedigree.
