CIDIG Group Presents Zoom Session Dec 3


The Johnson County Public Library is pleased to announce the final 

DNA & Genealogy Discussion Group

Saturday, December 3, 10 am to noon via Zoom.

This series is presented in memory of beloved presenter, friend and colleague, Denise Anderson-Decina (1953-2022).

DNA Testing: More than Autosomal

            So far this year we have focused on autosomal DNA testing. In December, join us as Angela Guntz, with the Central Indiana DNA Interest Group (CIDIG), focuses on the other two tests – Y DNA and mitochondrial DNA.  When should we consider these tests and what can we learn from our results?

            After the program, Angela will answer questions on genetic genealogy subjects. Attendees are encouraged to share their experiences using DNA testing in their genealogical research.

            Please register for this free program by calling the White River Branch at 317-885-1330 or by visiting . A link to the Zoom program will be emailed to all registrants the day before the program. Please make sure to include your email address with your registration.

            Also, keep an eye out for Black Friday sales.  DNA testing companies typically offer their best prices of year.
