Understanding DNA in Genealogy

Thursday, September 5, 2019 - Thursday, September 5, 20196:00 pmClaiborne Parish Library , Homer, LA

Do You Have Your Great, Great Grandfather’s Chin?

Do you have your grandmother’s skin tone, your great, great grandfather’s chin, your mother’s eyes, your dad’s freckles? Have you looked at old family photos and found a remarkable resemblance between yourself and your ancestors? It is fun to find these similarities in our families because it connects us to them in unique ways.

On Thursday, September 5, 2019, 6:00 p.m., George M. Camp will be presenting “Understanding DNA and Genealogy”.  Mr. Camp will be sharing some basic information to help you understand DNA testing and how it may assist in researching your family’s history.

DNA testing is an important component in genealogical research today, allowing us to dig much deeper into our past. It can help you confirm relationships, help you find new living relatives and may help you discover new avenues of research for tough-to-trace family lines.

George M. Camp has been an avid genealogist since 1958 providing assistance to many tracing their ancestry in historical and genealogical organizations.  He has taken an active part in genealogy seminars for over fifty years and continues to aide those researching their families.

Mr. Camp was the Emergency Room Supervisor at LSU Hospital for over twenty-seven years.  Since retiring he continues to work part time with the Psychiatric Crisis Unit.

This program is free and open to the public but seating is limited. Please call the Library at 318 -927-3845 to reserve your seat.
