Our April Meeting
April 12, 2014
Presented by Lisa Rysinger
From Scottish Rumor to Scottish Royalty?
Using Genetic Genealogy to Piece Together the Puzzle!

"I always thought I was 50% Italian, 25% German, and 25% Irish, but after I had my DNA tested, I quickly learned that there was much more to my ancestry than I originally thought. In 2012, I began my genetic journey and it took me to places I never imagined- Scotland, Russia, Greece and even Finland! I wanted to know more, so I began sharing genomes with some of my matches. Two years later, I have more than 1000 cousins on 23andMe and quite possibly a Scottish castle in my pedigree. Join me as I show you how to use the best features of 23andMe, FTDNA, and Ancestry to break through the brick walls that traditional genealogy research could not. With today's technology, a lot of persistence, and a little luck, you, too, may find your DNA taking you places that you never imagined! " - Lisa Rysinger
