The Klamath Basin Genealogical Society will present a one-day seminar entitled “I’ve Tested my DNA, Now What?” on Saturday, March 17th, at the Klamath County Library Meeting Room, 126 S. Third St, Klamath Falls. Doors open at 9:00 am. The program starts at 9:15 am and ends at 3:30 pm, with a lunch break.

The program will be presented by Susie Grohs, M.Ed. Susie is a retired teacher from the Klamath County School District, and has been involved in genealogy for more than 45 years. When Ancestry.com launched its first autosomal testing in 2012, she became interested in how DNA and genealogy were related and complemented each other. Susie has received several certificates for beginning and advanced DNA courses though the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy, and has attended numerous lectures at the National Genealogical Society conferences, Rootstech, as well as others in gaining her DNA knowledge. She is passionate about learning the secrets of DNA that are held within our genetics, such as genealogical segments and genetic medical discoveries. Susie serves as the lead instructor for the Klamath Basin Genealogical Society’s DNA Interest Group, which meets monthly, on the first Thursday, at the Klamath County Library.

The cost for the seminar is $10 for KBGS members, and $20 for non-members. Registration forms are available at the Klamath County Library and the Klamath County Museum. POC for additional information and registration is Vanessa Behrens at 541-892-1449.
