South Mississippi Genealogical & Historical Society Meeting

 

February Meeting information.



How Private is your DNA
 


Come to the Genealogy Library, 307 2nd Avenue in Hattiesburg, 7:00 p.m., to learn more about this topic. Many people have joined in the search for ancestors, adoptive parents, or medical information with the purchase or gift of a DNA kit. How private is your DNA information once you submit it? Can it be used in ways you don't wish? Gail Brown-Taylor of the Ocean Springs Genealogical Society will show how DNA was used to solve a crime identifying a cold case killer who had been a serial murder and rapist, even though his DNA was not actually in the databases

All meetings are free and open to the public. The Genealogy Library is open Saturdays 9:00-2:00 and before monthly meetings at 6:00 p.m. Experienced genealogy researchers will help you find your family roots. For more information contact Kathy Goss at 601-549-3983 or email gosskathleen@gmail.com.

The final version of our by-laws has been upload. Read them here.
