During the last meeting in February there was a lot of talk about DNA and GEDmatch.com . So, in addition to talking and actual filing this go around, for those of you who are interested, some members plan to get together and add their raw data to the GEDmatch.com site. If you have been following along on our Facebook page you would have seen the following post earlier this month from Selma:
Have you added GEDmatch.com to your DNA toolbox? For a brief video on how to join and add your raw data, the following is helpful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acGJmLlsWg4 If you have your DNA kit, you may want to get this next step done. Hint, hint, we will explain more at the April meeting and answer a BIG request from the group. But this MUST be done first! If you have been thinking about DNA and wonder should I? NOW is the time.
She has also posted several worksheets on Facebook that you can download and print out for organization and GEDmatch.com . For DNA, you need about 6 copies of the chromosome sheet when you come to the meeting. If you are not a member already, our Facebook group is found here .
So, bring a friend or two. Bring your DNA and GEDmatch.com files and chromosome sheets. This is a working workshop! And if you are not working on DNA you can join the rest of us by working on organization OR on anything else you want to! This is YOUR genealogy time. Away from the kids, or significant others, or who ever keeps bothering you and asking you to make them dinner.
