Florida: Drew Smith in Tampa, Oct. 11

One of Tracing the Tribe’s favorite people, Drew Smith of The Genealogy Guys, will speak on genealogy and DNA at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay on Sunday, October 11, 2009

The meeting begins at 1.30pm at the Gulf Coast Jewish Family Services, 14041 Icot Blvd., Clearwater.


Are you afraid to try DNA as a research tool because the science seems too intimidating? This overview will explain how DNA relates to genealogy, what kinds of DNA tests are available, and how researchers can share test results with each other as a basis for determining a relationship.

A genealogist with more than 30 years of computer experience, Drew is nationally known and is an instructor at the School of Library and Information Science at USF. He is co-host of the well-known “Genealogy Guys Podcast,” writes columns for two computer magazines, and holds many leadership roles in local, national and international genealogy organizations. He’s also a digital genealogy expert, and his new book, “Social Networking for Genealogists,” was very well received.
