Jean Sanner
Director @FGS Tampa
FGS Tampa is offering a DNA Special Interest Group. This month's topic is: “Case Study: Uncovering Irish Counties of Origin” This is our final scheduled session. We are pleased to have Jean Sanner present information on how to work with DNA results. She will cover foundational concepts of DNA testing for genealogy and specifically autosomal tests. If you are intimidated by the test results or if you don’t know how to work your matches or you don’t have confidence in any DNA based conclusions, then this group is a great place to start.
