"Making Sense of your DNA Test Results"  (AAGS Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Online via Zoom
We hope you will join us for our Thursday, January 6, 2022 program, "Making Sense of your DNA Test Results", presented by former AAGS President, Tom McCarriar.
Tom describes his program as follows and includes some details about his work in genealogy:
You’ve received the results from your DNA test, but you don’t know what to do next. You thought all of your ancestors came from Ireland, but your ethnicity results say you’re 30 percent German. And your long list of newly-discovered cousins is overwhelming.
In this presentation, Tom McCarriar will help you understand where those ethnicity estimates come from, and why they may not be what you expect. He will also provide some tips to help you start sorting out your DNA match list. No prior knowledge of DNA is required.
Tom McCarriar has been researching his family history for more than twenty years. His interest in genetic genealogy dates back to his first DNA test in 2011. Since then, he has taken courses, read books, attended seminars and conferences, and listened to webinars on genetic genealogy too numerous to list. Tom is currently teaching traditional and genetic genealogy courses at Howard Community College. He is a past President of AAGS, a member of the Maryland Genealogical Society Board of Directors, and a member of the National Genealogical Society and several state and local genealogical societies.
We'll start at 7:00 PM with our usual short business meeting and update. We continue to meet via Zoom and the link will be emailed to all members the day before the meeting. 
This program is open to the public. We will email the Zoom link for the meeting to AAGS members the day before the meeting. If you are not a member of AAGS there is a $5 charge to help us defray our expenses.  Please register and pay by credit card or PayPal here, and we will email you the link for the program the day before the meeting. We request that you register by 1:00pm Eastern Time on Wednesday, January 6, so we can send you the link in a timely manner.
