LIBERTY January 13, 2019 -The Liberty County Genealogical Society will meet Tuesday, January 21st at 10:00 in the DAR Meeting House on Grand Avenue in Liberty. The guest speaker will be Geri Hagler. Geri is a passionate teacher of science and genetic genealogy. She has been a family history researcher for over 25 years. In addition, she is a graduate of The University of Texas with a degree in Biology. She has been a science educator at a private school for the past decade and works as a technology coach for the school. A surprise in her family’s DNA results 5 years ago, prompted her to immerse herself in the tools and techniques that adoptees use to find their biological families and those used to break family tree brick walls. Since solving her own family mystery, Geri has helped many adoptees locate their biological relatives through DNA analysis.
|Geri is also in the process of creating helpful video tutorials and articles for her upcoming genetic genealogy website. Geri’s program will be “An Intro to Chromosome Mapping.” Find out how you can accomplish more with your DNA results. A match at a single segment of DNA cannot only reveal a “cousin” in the simplest sense but it can reveal the exact couple or even the exact ancestor from whom it was inherited.|
Join Geri Hagler as she introduces chromosome mapping and associated terms such as recombination and triangulation. This is a technique that she feels will advance DNA research. She will give an overview of the popular online tool, DNA Painter and ways you can build your DNA map. Be prepared for an engaging min-science lesson, but at a citizen scientist level!Please join the Liberty County Genealogical Society for this informative program which may unlock your fa
