BIFHSGO May meeting

The program for the Saturday May 10 monthly meeting of the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa, at Library and Archives Canada, is:

9:00 a.m.
Before BIFHSGO Education Talk
"Six Thoughts About Autosomal DNA Tests" by James F. S. Thomson and Elizabeth A. R. Kaegi

10:00 a.m.
What Really Happened? A Genetic Genealogy Success Story
Using several traditional genealogical techniques in conjunction with new genetic genealogy tests, Elizabeth A.R. Kaegi and James F.S. Thomson have been able to solve a six-decade old mystery, and have the findings conclusively confirmed. The drama and its resolution ranged across seven countries and finding the answers consumed many hours, especially in the last five years. The end result was very satisfying and Elizabeth acquired seven close family members, including two very new ones.

Open to members and visitors. Free admission. Free parking in lots east of the building which is at 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa.
