She is available on Thursday evenings from 6 p.m. To 8 p.m. at the Family History Center (4195 Camino Del Rio South) for personal consultations and a free class. Although Marti’s focus is African American Research all her presentations offer research strategies for other nationalities as well. Everyone is welcome!
Marti's presentation will be “Exploring Your DNA Results Today - You Can Discover Who You Are, Where You Came From, and Analyze your Ethnicity with DNA Testing!”
The presentation will take you on the journey Marti took to unravel the mysteries of her ancestors, and substantiate her Family Tree back to 1522. Marti admits she is no DNA expert … she would just like to stress the importance of the strategies she uses with pedigree charts and on-line family trees to explore her DNA results to create her Family Tree.
All meetings of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society are free to attend. Visitors are welcome. There will be a short business meeting, and refreshments, after the program presentation.
