DNA: A Power Tool in the Genealogist's Tool Box

The Chicago Genealogical Society will be having their February program this Saturday, February 3rd. We are meeting at the Swedish American Museum, 5211 North Clark Street in Chicago at 1:30pm. Our speaker will be Karen Stanbary, CG. DNA test results are so much more than ethnicity pie charts. Using real-life case examples, Karen will explore the practical applicability of DNA tests to everyday genealogical problems. This program is FREE.

Karen Stanbary, CG, holds the Certified Genealogist credential. She lectures locally and nationally on the use of DNA test results in genealogical problem-solving, always within the framework of the Genealogical Proof Standard. She is a Trustee for the Board for Certification of Genealogists and chairs that organization's Genetic Genealogy Standards committee.

Join us at the Swedish American Museum, 5211 North Clark, Chicago at 1:30pm for this program. Our program is free and there is complimentary parking at Foster and Ashland museum parking lot, Pay to Park on both Foster and Clark or CTA Foster Bus 92 and Clark bus 22. Check out the museum’s website for more details on the location and transportation.

You may wish to come early and visit their outstanding exhibit “The Dream of America: Swedish Immigration” which follows immigrants from the journey to the new world to building a life and community in Chicago. Note: exhibit fee is Adults $4; Children/students/seniors $3. The museum is open 11:00am to 4:00pm on February 3.

Hope to see you Saturday!
