For those who are considering testing or have tested at any of the DNA testing companies and are wondering where to
start, this is a beginner’s class that even those who think they’ve figured it out will enjoy.


The class curriculum emphasizes learning in different ways—visual, audial, tactile and theoretical. You’ll have the chance to play with learning tools, test your smarts and we might even have nap time!


Bring your questions about those teeny pieces of DNA and how they get in your family tree.


This Class is limited to 20 students.
The cost is $22.00 for members, $26.00 for non-members (includes $2.00 for handouts).
