Tuesday, July 11th, 2017, 5:45 - 6:45 p.m., DNA Testing for Genealogy Research: Fact & Fiction

Have you seen the AncestryDNA or the 23andMe ads and wondered what it was all about? Are you thinking about doing a DNA test for your genealogy research or have you done one already? Come to this introduction to Genetic Genealogy and get answers to your questions. TV researcher and Genealogist Janeen Bjork will present the basics of Genetic Genealogy. The discussion will cover the three types of DNA tests and the companies that offer them.

The options, the costs, the facts, and the misconceptions of what testing can do for you will also be discussed. Real results from several different companies will be shown to demonstrate what testing for DNA matches and ethnicity can (and can't) reveal.

Farioly Program Room, Danbury Public Library, 170 Main St, Danbury, CT 06810.

The event is free and open to the public. Please pre-register: danburylibrary.evanced.info/signup/EventDetails?EventId=18046&backTo=Calendar&startDate=2017/07/01

You’ll learn how to share and save your work for posterity. And there will be time to answer your questions about DNA for Genealogy. Your family, including people who have yet to be born, will thank you for your efforts! Fee: $36

There's no time like the present to explore and record your family's past!

Saturday, September 9, 2017 10:30 am - noon, Finding Your Family Online in Connecticut (and other) Newspapers

Naugatuck Valley Genealogy Club, Prospect Library, 17 Center Street, Prospect, CT 06712

TV researcher and genealogist Janeen Bjork has been obsessed with the information historical newspapers contain about her family ever since she found a story about the 1894 murder of her great-great grandfather, William Strutz, in a Syracuse, NY newspaper. At last count she had found over 130 different accounts of the tragedy, despite the murderer's or the victim's names being misspelled or misread by OCR (optical character recognition, the technology that allows newspapers to be indexed and searched online) in the majority of the newspapers. She has shared her passion and her methodology for excavating family stories from online newspapers in presentations and classes in Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts.

The program is free and all are welcome.
