Sharing & Showing Day  
        Do you have a family heirloom? How about a VERY favorite old photo (Identified or not identified – maybe we can help!)  Or a family tradition? (Christmas? Easter?  Birthday? – What does your family do that has been carried down from one generation to the next?   How about a favorite recipe that your family MUST have every certain holiday? Has it been handed down from your Polish ancestors?  We want you to share with the rest of us.  If it’s a recipe, feel free to bring copies of the recipe or samples for everyone to try.   Did your heirloom or old photo help you learn anything about your family genealogy?   By hearing about other family traditions, or learning how an old photo helped track down the elusive ancestor in your family tree, we all may learn something.  We want you to share your story and your item of interest with the rest of us. 
    Depending on the number of people and items to share, your time to “show & tell” may need to be limited but we’ll try to make sure everyone gets to ask questions, too.

DNA Workshop with Richard Hill           
Richard Hill discovered the power of DNA during his long search for biological ancestors. His DNA Workshop will introduce us to the leading genetic genealogy tests and compare them on how well they perform specific functions. He will also describe the key factors that will impact our results and share his favorite third-party resources. A Question and Answer session will follow.
Mr. Hill’s talks have been well received by libraries, genealogy groups and DNA conferences, including the 7th International Conference on Genetic Genealogy sponsored by Family Tree DNA, the world’s first Family History and DNA conference held in conjunction with the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree, and Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE in England.
Because this meeting will be a workshop on DNA, bring your questions and personal quandaries about DNA, and any DNA test results you have had done.  This will be important in order for our expert, Richard Hill, to help answer your questions.
