Detailed benefit information

For those of you who may have an interest in the use of DNA in genealogical research the GSSC will be presenting a DNA Seminar with Katherine Hope Borges in October 26, 2013 at the Trinity United Presbyterian Church in Modesto.  Katherine is the co-founder of the International Society of Genetic Genealogy and intimately familiar with the genetic genealogical process.  It was this familiarity and her personal experience that lead to the founding of ISOGG.
