January 23 @ 7pm - 8:30pm**
Olivia Raney Local History Library
4016 Carya Drive, Raleigh, North Carolina 27610

Video Presentation - DNA: Mapping your Chromosomes using DNApainter

You've taken one or more DNA tests, you've looked at your ethnicity reports, and you've found some relatives whose DNA matches yours. Maybe you've even loaded your DNA into GedMatch. What's next? Chromosome mapping!

We will view and discuss a recent video by Blaine Bettinger about chromosome mapping using a new tool, DNApainter. This tool is currently free. Some WCGS members say it's the easiest mapping tool they have seen. Blaine is an attorney and an expert in DNA. He is also an excellent speaker.

All WCGS meetings are free and open to the public. Bring a friend! Refreshments will be served during social time after the presentation.

In case of cancellation due to inclement weather or other reasons, we will attempt to notify members via email, our website
and our Facebook page
Please do not travel to events if you feel that doing so would be unsafe.
