For our March member meeting Connie Bradshaw returns with more DNA goodness to help our research efforts. Her presentation takes a look at the different companies providing Autosomal DNA testing along with their pros and cons, what results are provided from the testing labs and what to do with your results.

Connie is a 26 year U.S. Navy veteran, a member of a variety of national and local genealogical and historical societies and a well-known speaker on genetic genealogy. In addition to genealogical research, Connie advises individuals on methods of preserving their own life stories, photos and heirlooms with the Legacy Stories’ Reminiscing With Purpose program.
