NIFHS announce extra DNA class

The North of Ireland Family History Society run a series of classes each spring and autumn to help family historians. The DNA classes have been particularly popular and have booked up very quickly, so the society has arranged an extra beginners’ class starting in November. It is aimed at helping people who have received their autosomal DNA results from Family Tree DNA, or those who have transferred in their results from other companies such as Ancestry, MyHeritage and 23andMe.

The society also advises that there are still a few places on other courses starting soon so get your skates on if you would like to book your place!

· Family Finder. Learn how to use DNA tools to further your family history research.
Monday 19th November, 7pm, 3 weeks.

· From Family Tree to Family History. Developing your family tree into a readable story.
Tuesday 6th November, 11am, 3 weeks.

· Sharing Your Family History. Using PowerPoint to create a “talking book” to share with your family.
Tuesday 13 November, 7 pm, 1 class.

All classes take place at the society’s Library and Resource Centre in Newtownabbey, just north of Belfast.
