Introduction to Using DNA Testing in Genealogy

dec4classFor 2018, the Historical Society of Montgomery County has added a few new special-topic genealogy classes to its schedule!


Our next special-topic genealogy class, Introduction to Using DNA Testing in Genealogy, will take place on Tuesday, December 4, 2018, at 6:30 pm.

Over the past few years at-home DNA tests have become quite popular tools for genealogists.  But as with any new tool, there is a learning curve!  Genealogist Sydney Cruice Dixon will help introduce you to this new instrument in the genealogical toolbelt and take some of the mystery out of what genealogical information you may be able to get out of the new DNA tests.

Sydney F. Cruice Dixon is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists. She has been actively researching family genealogies since 1995. In addition to conducting research and providing genealogical coaching, Dixon currently teaches both beginner and intermediate level genealogy courses. She also lectures regularly throughout the tri-state area. She is also a member of the planning committee for the Main Line Genealogy Club in the Philadelphia area.


The program is $10 for members of the Historical Society of Montgomery County and just $20 for non-members.  Please contact the historical society at (610) 272-0297 to reserve your spot!
