Program: “Using DNA to Expand Your Family History”

The Mennonite Heritage Center, 565 Yoder Road, Harleysville, announces the program: “DNA is Family Fare — Using DNA to Expand Your Family History” by Darvin Martin, scheduled for Thursday, October 19 at 7 pm. The program is open to the public with admission by donation.

Mr. Martin, an historian, scientist and genealogist, will discuss what to do if you hit a roadblock in your family history research and wonder if DNA can help, but you don’t have a clue how to begin. DNA research can expand your family tree in all directions deep in the past, but it is important to choose the correct test (and the correct relative to test) in order to achieve your objectives. Find what you can learn from a DNA test as this is a whole new way to think about family history. Learn how to begin this fascinating journey, uncovering the diversity of your ancient ancestry.

Be sure also to attend Darvin’s program “The Diverse DNA among Swiss Mennonite and Amish Families” at the Mennonite Heritage Center on October 26 at 7:00 pm.
