The next meeting of the Cape Town Family History Society will be on:

Saturday 19 January at St John’s Church, Wynberg.  14.15 for 14:30pm

Speaker: Anne Johnston (member of our society, from Northern Ireland)

Topic: Interpreting your Autosomal DNA Results

There is also a chance of holding a practical session for those who have already done their DNA tests (date and place to be advised, own laptops will be needed).

 Anne is a Project Administrator for the North of Ireland DNA Project. This is a project established by the North of Ireland Family History Society to use DNA testing as an aid to making genealogical connections within and between families whose roots are in the North of Ireland. Objectives of the project are to:

  • promote DNA testing by those whose heritage is from the North of Ireland.
  • offer information, support and training for those who test and manage the DNA tests of others.
  • share DNA results to facilitate genealogical connections.

She has been researching her own family history, which is from the Northern Ireland and Scotland, for over 50 years, on and off.
