Building on the success of our First Thursday FREE Genealogy Support Group sessions, Windsor Historical Society has engaged genealogist Jennifer Zinck for two programs: The first session DNA & Your Family Tree happens Thursday, September 13, 2018 at 7 p.m. and the second, Exploring Your AncestryDNA Results will be on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at 7 p.m. The cost for each of these sessions is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, and $4 for Windsor Historical Society members. You may attend either or both sessions. Register at the door or visit windsorhistoricalsociety.org to sign up online. Contact us at 860-688-3813 for more information.

At the DNA & Your Family Tree session on September 13, you’ll earn about three types of DNA most commonly used for genealogy and how each helps you discover family history. Explore direct-to-consumer DNA testing companies and common testing strategies ensuring that genealogists get the most out of their DNA testing budget. Zinck will also discuss the most successful methods for contacting and collaborating with DNA matches.

At the Exploring Your AncestryDNA Results session on September 25, find out what to do with all those names and numbers. Zinck will explore the information provided in AncestryDNA results, discuss methods to manipulate the results, and introduce third-party tools that maximize the use of DNA as a tool for genealogy.

First Thursday Genealogy Support Group sessions will occur on October 4, November 1, and December 6, so put these on your calendar.
