   "To DNA or Not to DNA: That Is the Question?"
 
Is your head spinning with questions and confusion over DNA?  This program will focus in on the three primary tests that are done, the results you can expect from each, who is the best candidate to be tested, and which of the major DNA companies are your best choice to give you results which will help you solve your genealogical mysteries.

Beginning Mistakes  (Monthly Meeting)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
North Kansas City Library, 2251 Howell St., NKC, MO 64116
Beginning Mistakes
by
Beth Foulk
 
We all know that awful feeling of “ugh!” when we’ve wasted our time, messed up the tree, or found a better, faster way to the results we wanted. This class outlines – with personal examples – many mistakes that you can now avoid. Laugh, learn, and love the new ideas you’ll come away with knowing how to more effectively build your family tree

From her website, Beth writes, "Genealogy is more than collecting records, dates, and places of our ancestors. It’s about understanding the lives of the people whose choices shaped our lives in the most personal ways. It’s about knowing ourselves through the people who came before us.

I get excited about learning their stories and helping others with their own family history journey. I enjoy the road of discovery. I relish in sharing that experience with fellow searchers."

Capture History Now  (Monthly Meeting)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
North Kansas City Library, 2251 Howell St., NKC, MO 64116
Capture History Now
by
Beth Foulk
 
As genealogists we zero in on finding the wonderful treasures of our past – as we should. However, we often neglect capturing the family history being created now, in the 21st Century. We forget that our current events are our children’s family history. Break open the can of “memory catcher” and learn how to save today for tomorrow.
 
Beth discovered her love of genealogy through her father, who built a 115-name family tree with every family member’s name he knew. While Beth continues to research her family, she shares her knowledge through lectures, articles, her blog, and one-on-one assistance. She particularly enjoys speaking at regional conferences.
