"Finding Your Ancestors in the Old Country" Program Reveiw for the NSDCGS

Once again Anne Miller provided a informative program with several excellent examples. She warned us to analyze documents carefully. She discussed several different immigrant ancestor record types which could be used to find an elusive ancestor. She also mentioned researching collateral lines to solve those brick walls.

She mentioned a special seminar she will be giving at Jamboree. See her website at

Also, our special events chair mentioned the upcoming Spring Seminar: Family Tree DNA and You, which will be presented on Saturday march 27 2010 at the Carlsbad Senior Center on 799 Pine Street in Carlsbad, California. The cost for this seminar is $25.00 for members and $30.00 for non members. Currently we have about eighty people that have signed up to go to this seminar. Lunch includes a turkey sandwich, salad and drink. Family Tree DNA will be presenting the Spring Seminar and topic include: Y-DNA and mtDNA Genealogy and Website Tools; Haplogroups: Deep Ancestry & Migration Patterns, Medical Testing and the Future of Personal DNA Testing and Without a Surname to Follow: What Can You Do? There will be a new type of genetic test announced, so you probably won't want to miss this seminar. Contact to register for this seminar.
