The Clayton Library Friends General Meeting will be held on Saturday, February 10, 2018. Registration will start at 10:15 and the meeting will start at 10:30 in the Carriage House Meeting Room at Clayton Library.
Our featured guest, Andy Lee, will present: Understanding DNA Basics. DNA is all the rage. But what is it that makes this such a great record? And what is it that makes it a poor record? Understanding more about DNA can help you to know when to look to this amazing record for answers and when looking at DNA is counter productive. Learn about some of the science behind DNA, how it is passed on to each generation and how that relates to the genealogy problems we face. Simple examples (using LEGO) will be given to help you understand this complex subject. At the end of the lecture you will know why DNA works the way it does as a genealogical record and have some extra tools to help answer your own DNA questions.
