his is the tentative start date for the Amelia Island Genealogical Society Beginning Genealogy course. More details will follow soon. Expected duration 5 weeks of class instruction with an additional 2 hour mentoring session one-on-one. The class is limited due to the size of the room, as such, this course typically sells out quickly!

For centuries, genealogists have based their studies on ancient records and oral affidavits to establish line of descent. Fifty years after the discovery of DNA, the age of genealogical DNA testing was launched, providing us with scientific methods to prove relationships. But how were DNA and genes discovered? What are their lines of descent? This entertaining presentation will focus on describing the thrills, intrigue and espionage associated with the amazing race to solve the puzzle of this remarkable molecule by three competing scientific teams. The speaker will also describe the different types of DNA genetic testing, and will show how his own DNA test results encapsulate the story of human migration.
