The Albuquerque Genealogical Society
Genealogy Seminar
"A Day with the Celts”
Featuring Dr. Maya Magee Sutton and John Adam Farris

Join us to learn about one of the most numerous ancient ancestors we have in the US. Even today we carry their DNA.

Saturday, September 23, 2017 10:30 am to 4:30 pm Albuquerque Main Library Auditorium - Lower Level 501 Copper Avenue NW, Albuquerque, NM

Maya Sutton, PhD, will discuss the origin of the Celts, their migration patterns and vibrant mythology. She will talk about their sacred sites, social classes, and enduring crafts.

A lunchtime activity will explore the influence of the Celts on our present-day life. Dr. Sutton has taught Celtic mythology and history at UNM for many years. She has dual citizenship with Ireland, and has traveled in Celtic homelands a dozen times to gather material for her courses and books.

Our very own John Farris will talk about Celtic DNA and how often it is found in our DNA today. He has extensive DNA experience and has spoken to the Albuquerque Genealogy Society on “How DNA Tests Can Enrich Your Family History” and gave similar talks to the Albuquerque and Santa Fe Chapters of the SAR and at a Four Corners joint DAR/SAR meeting.

Pre-Registration is required by September 8, 2017!
