CCGS Membership Meeting Note
At our last meeting in November, Russ Hudson provided an update on DNA services used by researchers to assist them in their genealogical research. One topic of discussion was the use of Y-DNA and how FTDNA's Y-700 test was assisting researchers in tearing down their brick walls.
