The public is invited to learn more about “Solving Family Mysteries with DNA” presented by the Del Mar-Leucadia Chapter of the American Association of University Women. Membership in the AAUW is open to anyone with a two-year college degree or more. Branch President and genealogist Linda Quinby will share her expertise during the Zoom event, Saturday, October 14, from 10 a.m. to noon. Guests must RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for a Zoom link. The Zoom room will open at 10 a.m. for social/chat time followed by the program at 10:30 a.m. All are welcome.
Quinby is a member of the North San Diego County Genealogical Society, where she has given several lectures on family history methods and findings. She will explain how she and her collaborating cousins used both modern technology and traditional genealogy to identify a previously unknown ancestor dating back more than 150 years ago. This case study will demonstrate how you can apply DNA results to your family mysteries. Quinby has been researching his family tree since he was 15.
