DNA Basics

In the Fall, your Society is planning a Seminar on DNA. This program on DNA basics is intended to peak your interest in the Seminar and to provide you with some genetic genealogy DNA basics and what tests to take and why. Lewis will provide you with the testing basics, his experience with DNA testing and how the use of DNA led him to the tiny village in Northern Ireland where his 5th Great Grandfather had lived before departing to North America in very early 1700.

El Vista LDS Modesto, California

This year was the 2nd Annual Family History Day at the El Vista LDS. The Genealogical Society of Stanislaus County was present. According to those that attended, the turn out was good. The Society ran out of flyers for Membership. It was great fun with a lot of classes that people attended on various Genealogical topics. There were displays in the Gym, and our Society had several tables set up with displays for Genealogy and German Research, along with our Members and their laptops and tablets to help people with doing their Genealogy. Thank you to all of our Members that came out and helped, and thank you to the El Vista LDS for inviting the Genealogical Society of Stanislaus County!

WHEN A MAN DIES A LIBRARY BURNS TO THE GROUND
Many Facets to Writing About Your Family--Member by Member

What do you want to learn in any article you read about your Ancestor?  Is it that they came in steerage? Or do you want to know what that really meant? We all know they did not swim across the ocean.
Unless you are an historian who is writing a book to bore students to death with cold facts and no frills, you want a moment in the life of the person who made you possible.  Hopefully this talk will give you some ideas about ways to approach this.
