This presentation will provide an overview of the three types of DNA testing for genetic genealogy purposes: YDNA, MtDNA or mitochondrial DNA, and atDNA or autosomal DNA.

About his upcoming talk, he writes, "At the beginning of the twentieth century, Francis La Flesche, an Omaha, recorded and translated many of the teachings of the ancient Osage Wa-kon-da-ge, or men of mystery. With the adoption of the peyote religion the actual We-gi-e and Wa-thon of the ancient men were abandoned. However, as I will argue, the basic ideas incorporated in these teachings were not forgotten. Only by understanding these basic ideas, can one understand how the Osage culture adapted and why the Osage have survived as a people until the present day."

“How Old Did He Have To Be ...?”
For registration information, go to www.ncgenealogy.org.
Is this man John the father or John the son? Could that man be my ancestor who married in 1802?
Knowing a person’s age is often the key to distinguishing between two people of the same name. But if no record gives a birth date, how do you know how old someone was? The law can often give the answer.
