The Lost Grandmother: atDNA and a 19th-Century Family History Mystery

Saturday, May 7, 2022

The Alexander Martin Chapter, NSDAR presents Larry Cates, HPPL librarian and genealogist, as he walks you through how he identified the parents of a woman born in North Carolina but married in Virginia and who died before death records were kept. There were no obvious clues to her parents' identity. This 19th-century case yielded its secrets with moderate effort using the DNA results of the lady's great-great granddaughter. In this case, documentation was found to substantiate the findings. You can achieve similar results using the same method. Preregistration required to a limit of 50 attendees. Send your RSVP to howlerdemondeacon@gmail.com.
