At the Ottawa DNA Special Interest Group meeting on Saturday it was pointedly commented that I hadn't mentioned the founding meeting of a DNA Interest Group for Scotland to be held on 18 January in Glasgow.
The goal is to establish a forum for:
- sharing and comparing results of research in genetic genealogy
- encouraging the use of genetic genealogy within the British Isles with a particular focus on Scotland (anyone within reach of Glasgow is welcome to attend)
- administrators of DNA surname, geographical and haplogroup projects to exchange ideas on project management and interpreting results
- helping people who have taken genetic DNA tests to make sense of their test results and what they might mean for their genealogical research
