Guest speaker gives lecture on DNA testing and genealogy

Congregation Kol Shalom will host the lecture “DNA Testing and Genealogy” at 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9.

Mary Kathryn Kozy will speak. Come and learn the basics of what DNA testing is, what it can and can’t tell you. Kozy will cover the different types of DNA tests and discuss which tests are appropriate for which genealogical scenarios. This class will have something for everyone, from beginners to experienced testers.

Kozy has been working on her own family history or almost 35 years and she currently serves as President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Washington.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Donations will be graciously accepted.
