Let's start with building the foundation...  (DNA SIG)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
 
     Topic: Let's start with building the foundation...
 
It’s that sound foundation on which everything else is built: the walls, the floors, the roof all depend on having a sound foundation.     
The Legal Genealogist
 
We are going to go back to basics; not DNA basics, but to the basics of using DNA for Genealogical research. 
 
First we are going to visit the Genetic Science Learning Center at the University of Utah.
There we are going to view 5 short videos (all about 2-5 minutes long) that will illestrate how the four different types of DNA can help us in the quest for our ancestors. The site also has many other videos in the Tour of Basic Genetics section.
We will be able to discuss and review the videos until we feel that we understand everything we need to know; until we have build us a good, firm foundation in the basics of using DNA in genealogical research.
