WCGS DNA SIG Meeting
September 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
The Williamson County Genealogical Society DNA SIG meeting will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Join us for a presentation about yDNA, xDNA, and mtDNA by Alan Rabe.
We will discuss the male chromosome (yDNA), the female chromosome (xDNA), and mitrochondrial DNA (mtDNA). In other words, the other DNA used besides the autosomal DNA in a test like Ancestry. We will begin with a brief discussion with news from Ancestry regarding SideView and their new Chromosome Painter. yDNA discussion will include both STRs and SNPs (37 markers to Big Y-700). The FamilyTree DNA website will be a key part of the discussion.
You can access the Zoom meeting on the WCGS website.
WCGS meetings and workshops are FREE and open to the public! All interest and experience levels are welcome!
