Free Genealogy Workshop to Discuss DNA This Weekend

Free Genealogy Workshop to Discuss DNA Tests in Genealogy Research
Local Family Historian to Conduct Free Genealogy Seminar
Genealogists trace family trees through vital records and historical documents. But most of you, like most all genealogists, will find like that inevitably the paper trail eventually ends in a “brick wall.”

Non-paternity events, such as illegitimate births, adoptions, and name changes can also mean that a branch you are tracing may not, in fact, be part of your biological tree. There is a way to conduct genealogy research under such conditions and thanks to genetic genealogy DNA testing, that break through brick walls and find the truth.

If you are interested in genealogy, genetic genealogy testing or have already testing and looking for more information, then a free genetic DNA genealogy workshop that will be held on December 8 is a must attend.

Larry Van Horn, noted local family historian, syndicated genealogy newspaper columnist, and genealogy instructor/lecturer will conduct this free genetic genealogy seminar for genealogists on December 8 (Saturday morning) between 9:00-12:00 a.m. at the Moss Memorial Library, 26 Anderson Street in Hayesville, North Carolina.

Larry, who has been teaching genealogy classes at Tri-County Community College for the last 14 years, will present material that will aid the newcomer in discovering their family's past using this new high tech genealogy tool.

So if you are interested in researching your past, and uncovering your family's great American story, be sure to mark December 8 from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at the Moss Memorial Library on your calendar.
