"Deep Ancestry: Beyond the Paper Trail," presented by CAGGNI's President, Michelle Wilson on
Saturday, 16 June 2012 at 10:30 am at the Schauburg Township District Library.
While some genealogists claim kin back to Charlemagne, for all of us, the paper trail eventually peters out. Fortunately, genetics, linguistics, paeleontology, and other sciences are opening up new ways to discover our deep ancestry. Building on last year's "Genes for the Genealogist" program, Michelle will show how your ancestor's ancient migration routes can be traced and how to find where you fit in the tree of humanity. Don't miss this informative and engaging presentation. Part of CAGGNI's DNA Series
CAGGNI (Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois) is a group of amateur genealogists who are committed to using technology and the internet more effectively in support of their family history research activities.
CAGGNI meets at 10:30am on the third Saturday of every month except December usually at the Schaumburg Township District Library. Monthly meeting topics cover a broad range of subjects of interest in supporting genealogical activities including software, tools, techniques and methodologies. Additionally, monthly newsletters, support for both computer and genealogy issues and Internet surname exposure are among the benefits of membership.
