BGS MEETING — August 22, 2015 — Y-DNA as a Genealogical Tool

General Meeting for April: The Birmingham Genealogical Society will meet at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 22nd on the fourth floor of the Birmingham Public Library (in the Arrington Auditorium). The Board of Directors will meet at 1:00 p.m. in the same room.

Please join us as BGS member, Bill Clement, presents “Y-DNA as a Genealogical Tool.”  The Y-DNA test is for men only (men have one x and one y chromosome).  Surname Projects use Y-DNA test results as it is useful in tracing the male participant’s father’s line. Since Y-DNA is passed down from father to son, just as surnames are passed down in western societies, it is easy to visualize and track through genealogy. This is why Y-DNA projects are organized around surnames. Please join us for this informative program!
