Our September meeting has been cancelled due to Hurricane Irma. Many members are still without power and all of us are cleaning up more than our share of debris. The September 30th DNA presentation with Connie Bradshaw is still a go. Hope to see you then!
The St Augustine Genealogy Society is partnering with the St Johns Public Library, Southeast Branch, in a presentation by Connie Bradshaw on genetic genealogy or using DNA in genealogy research. This talk will take place on September 30, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. at the SE Branch Library. The public is welcome.
Connie Bradshaw is the owner of I Dig Your Roots, a research firm that focuses on genetic genealogy. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the International Society of Genetic Genealogists, the National Genealogical Society, and numerous state and local genealogical societies.
After conducting over thirty (30) years of personal family history, Connie completed Boston University’s Certificate Program in Genealogical Research in 2012 and opened her own research firm. She is the volunteer project administrator of three family DNA projects at Family Tree DNA, the family genealogist for the Historic Carson House located in Marion, North Carolina and coordinates several family reunions.
Connie is a twenty-six (26) year Navy veteran originally from Spokane, Washington. In the twenty (20) years since leaving her military career, she and her husband, Doug, have traveled throughout the United States, affording her the opportunity to do what she loves – hunting for elusive ancestors.
Here’s a slideshow of photos from this month’s member meeting and anniversary celebration. Special thanks to all the staff and members who pulled together this delightful party and especially to Shirley Thomson for her tribute to Virginia Hassenflu, our society’s founder.
