‘Genetic Genealogy - DNA for Beginners’ - Debbie KENNETT 

If you’ve been intrigued by the recent television programmes about the use of DNA testing to trace your ancestors, you’ll be intrigued by the Alde Valley Suffolk Family History Group’s next online talk, which will be given by Debbie KENNETT at 7.30 p.m. on Monday, 19th April 2021.  

Debbie Kennett is an internationally recognised expert on genetic genealogy. She is an Honorary Research Associate in the Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment at University College London, and is the author of two books, DNA and Social Networking and The Surnames Handbook. She writes about DNA testing for all the UK family history magazines and has been researching her own family history since 2002.
DNA testing and the new generation of social networking websites are becoming increasingly useful tools. DNA testing can now be used to prove or disprove genealogical connections and will put you in touch with your genetic cousins around the world. 
This Zoom based event is free to members, but is also available to non-members at a cost of £3. If you wish to ‘attend’ please register via our website https://avsfhg.org.uk/events/book/  and you will be sent joining instructions. Don’t leave it too late – places are filling up fast!
