Clayton Library Presents - 

Using DNA to Identify Enslaved Ancestors

Reconstructing the lineage of enslaved ancestors is a process that presents unique challenges, due to the involuntary separations that severed family ties and records that rarely identified the enslaved by surnames. Learn from nationally renowned guest speaker LaBrenda Garrett-Nelson to apply DNA standards to test results to establish genealogical proof of a genetic relationship. Reservations required, use link below to register for this Zoom Meeting. Registration is limited.
