Genetic Genealogy: What Can DNA Tell Me About My Ancestry?

May 25 @ 7:00 pm

Presented by Dr. John Butler, for the New Market Historical Society.

Located at the New Market Town Council Chambers at 9418 John Sevier Road.

We inherit DNA from our parents. This genetic material defines our physical characteristics but can also be used to understand our heritage and to connect family lineages. Dr. Butler’s presentation will review what can and cannot be done with DNA testing and review the basics of genetic markers used today in genetic genealogy tests by companies such as Ancestry, FamilyTree DNA, and 23andMe.

Dr. Butler is a leading expert on forensic DNA profiling. The public is welcome.
