Confused about how to use your DNA results to further your genealogy research? Join us this Saturday at 1 PM for Karen Stanbury's presentation: “Using DNA Test Results in the Genealogical Proof Standard.

The presentation covers the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) and an exploration of DNA specifically within its framework.

We will also discuss published proof arguments incorporating DNA evidence.
