Georgia Genealogical Society will present “African-American Genealogy and DNA” on Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 8 p.m. This webinar will present cases where DNA enabled the presenter to populate his family tree. DNA was the direct piece of evidence that identified or confirmed ancestors, which linked perfectly with the circumstantial and indirect evidence that were gathered. The webinar will also show how DNA enabled the presenter to break down that “1870 Brick Wall” to document enslaved ancestors.
