Intro to DNA testing with Diana Nelson

Local genealogist Diana Nelson will lead the Zoom session Introduction to DNA Testing at 10 a.m., Sunday, Feb. 14 for Miami Valley Jewish Genealogy & History in partnership with Beth Abraham Synagogue Men’s Club Speaker Series and Temple Israel’s Ryterband Lecture Series.

Nelson is the education chair of the Greene County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society, and a member of the Miami Valley Jewish Genealogy & History Advisory Committee. She’s worked on her family history for 30 years. Nelson became interested in using DNA testing a dozen years ago and now manages five kits for her family and five for her husband’s family.

For this session, she’ll discuss the different types of DNA tests, what consumers can learn from them, and their limitations.
