This group seeks to share information on aspects of genetic family history.
This includes use of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) information in searching for family, whether as surname or all-male lines, all female lines, or close cousins. DNA can add weight to existing documentary evidence, suggest new lines of research, and help resolve questions such as whether you could be related to a particular family.
Some group members are interested in medical aspects, either for historical reasons or for their own well-being. Others members are interested in deep history, not just where their recorded ancestors lived, but also their probable ancient origins.
This broad range of interests is represented for convenience by just three letters: DNA.
You are welcome to join us.
For further information, phone Chris Schuetz on 0413 594 243 or Ann Swain on 07 3352 5537
The group meets in the QFHS Library and Resource Centre between 1.30 pm and 3.30 pm on the first Saturday of every month (except January).
