Saturday, May 12: Nora Galvin - "Using DNA as Evidence in Family History Research"

​This lecture will discuss the three types of DNA that are tested for genealogy, with an emphasis on mitochondrial and Y DNA. You will learn how these DNA types are passed down to you, from which ancestors, and how the data are useful as evidence for proving descendancy from particular ancestors.

A former biology teacher and laboratory scientist, Nora Galvin started a full-time genealogy business in 2005. She specializes in Connecticut research, Irish research and genetic genealogy. Nora is active in local genealogy societies and regional professional organizations and was awarded the title “Certified Genealogist” in 2014.
