 Genealogy DNA

Date: Tuesday, September 15, 2020
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: Virtual
Fees: FREE 

Your DNA results have arrived, but your ethnicity is not what you expected? You have cousin matches, but you don't know who they are or how you are related? This presentation will discuss what your ethnicity results might mean and how to determine your relationship to your matches and what they can do to forward your family tree.

Elizabeth Williams Gomoll, CG, began researching her Swedish and German ancestors more than forty years ago. She is president of the Association of Professional Genealogists Northland Chapter, co-editor of Minnesota Genealogist quarterly journal, and serves as director for the Minnesota Genealogical Society. Liz is a member of the National Genealogical Society, Association for Professional Genealogists, and several ethnic societies. Her book With Love to All is available at Amazon. Liz does research professionally for clients across the U.S. and overseas as Red Bird Genealogy Services (www.redbirdgen.com). 

Registration for this virtual event is required. After registering you will receive a confirmation email. A separate email closer to the date will be sent containing the link and passcode for joining the event.

This presentation is offered free of charge, but encourage you to make a donation to the Dakota County Historical Society to offset the loss of revenue we are experiencing through cancelled events. Donations will allow us to continue operating at a high level and continue to provide these programs virtually in the future.

This event is made possible by the Union Pacific Foundation COVID-19 Relief Grant.
