Understanding DNA Basics - Andrew Lee
Clayton Library Friends 
10 February 2018
10:30 AM (CST)
DNA is all the rage. But what is it that makes this such a great record? And what is it that makes it a poor record? Understanding more about DNA can help you to know when to look to this amazing record for answers and when looking at DNA is counter-productive. Learn about some of the science behind DNA, how it is passed on to each generation and how that relates to the genealogy problems we face. Simple examples (using LEGO) will be given to help you understand this complex subject. You’ll finish this class knowing why DNA works the way it does as a genealogical record and have some extra tools to help answer your own DNA questions.

Family History Fanatics Speakers at RootsTech



Downsizing With Family History in Mind - Andrew & Devon Noel Lee
RootsTech  (Salt Lake City, UT)
28 February 2018
1:30 (MST)
Do we really need to keep all of this stuff? When it’s time to downsize, an overwhelming pile of documents, photos, and memorabilia can paralyze even the most ardent genealogist. How can you preserve your vital research for future generations while reducing the quantity of your files? How do you know what to keep and what can be tossed if you’ve inherited a room full of loosely organized genealogy file cabinets? This class discusses these challenges.

5 Steps for Successfully Starting in Genealogy - Devon Noel Lee
RootsTech  (Salt Lake City, UT)
1 March 2018
3:00 (MST)
Did you watch a genealogy based television show and decide, “Hey, I want to find out about my family!” or do hope to determine the truth behind the family legends? These two examples, among many, are fire starters to invite you to begin genealogy. But what happens next? Do you fill out a chart? Do you sign up for an online tree builder? Come learn the answers to these and other newbie genealogy questions! You’ll learn 5 steps to successfully seeking out your family history. Every beginner genealogy course available starts with pedigree charts and group sheets. After a decade of helping beginners get started, this is the WRONG place to start. It’s better to start with the heart of family history and build from there.
