Temecula Valley Genealogical Society

Our Special Interest Groups

-DNA Group-
Our DNA Group has been active for over 10 years. We have been learning and growing with genealogy DNA technology and research methods as they change and improve. The classes allow us to help each other break down brick walls and solve many unanswered cousin questions. A very frequent, speaker Kathy Fernandes, guides us through multiple methodologies to solve unknown parentage and improve success with utilizing cousin matches. Learn how to analyze all your information by connecting your DNA and your genealogy research to form a more complete family picture.
You could be a beginner or a seasoned researcher with using DNA, either way there will always be something new to learn at our monthly classes. Visitors are always welcome, so come join us any time and discover something new.
