Genealogy Roundtable (GENRT)
The Genealogy Roundtable provides a forum serving the interests of genealogists and of librarians whose work is in, or related to, the field of genealogy. Its objective is to train and assist librarians who provide service to genealogists.
The webinar on DNA held by Julie Stoddard in March 2022 is now available on ULA’s YouTube channel. If you want the handout that contains the slides of the presentation, you need to contact Julie directly. Her email is stated in the presentation on marker 52:30 through 56:10.
