Join Clayton Library staff member Franklin Smith for quarterly discussion sessions on autosomal DNA research. Previous sessions covered the basics of DNA testing, now get ready for 3rd party DNA tools.

While open to all experience levels, this discussion group is best for beginners who have completed a DNA test and are unsure what to do with their test results.
