You’ve probably seen those TV ads for online DNA testing — the ones where happy people who were unsure about their ethnic background discover a new heritage. If you’re working on a family tree and have hit a dead end, you may wonder if one of these tests might help nudge your research back another generation or two. But even a quick online search will bring up a confusing array of tests — Y-DNA, autosomal, mitochondrial — and none of them is cheap. How far back will each of them take you? How do you decide which test is best for your purposes? Joyce Fingland from the Ontario Genealogical Society will be explaining DNA Testing and Genealogy, starting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 5, at the Isabel Turner branch of the Kingston Frontenac Public Library. Part of the library’s monthly KFPL Live Speakers’ Series, this presentation will outline the kinds of results provided by two major players, Ancestry and Family Tree DNA. Joyce will explain the pros and cons of each service and show how each has helped form her own family tree. This event is open to all, but seating is limited. To avoid disappointment, please register in advance. Registration opens online at events.kfpl.ca and by phone at (613) 549-8888 at 9 a.m. on Saturday, November 25. For more information, visit www.kfpl.ca . Looking ahead to next year?

Description:

You’ve probably seen those TV ads for online DNA testing — the ones where happy people who were unsure about their ethnic background discover a new heritage.  If you’re working on a family tree and have hit a dead end, you may wonder if one of these tests might help nudge your research back another generation or two.  But even a quick online search will bring up a confusing array of tests — Y-DNA, autosomal, mitochondrial — and none of them is cheap. How far back will each of them take you?  How do you decide which test is best for your purposes?

Joyce Fingland from the Ontario Genealogical Society will be explaining DNA Testing and Genealogy, starting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 5, at the Isabel Turner branch of the Kingston Frontenac Public Library.  Part of the library’s monthly KFPL Live Speakers’ Series, this presentation will outline the kinds of results provided by two major players, Ancestry and  Family Tree DNA.  Joyce will explain the pros and cons of each service and show how each has helped form her own family tree.

This event is open to all, but seating is limited. To avoid disappointment, please register in advance. Registration opens online at events.kfpl.ca and by phone at (613) 549-8888 at 9 a.m. on Saturday, November 25.  For more information, visit www.kfpl.ca .
