The Shropshire Family History Society was founded in 1979 to provide a meeting place in Shropshire for all those interested in Family History. The Society is now a Registered Charity (No: 514014) with around 1100 members from all round the world.

Membership is open to anyone interested in family history and non‑members are welcome to visit one of our meetings, for a small donation, to become familiar with our activities.

April monthly talk - Dr Penny Walters : Demystifying DNA test results

Tuesday 16/04/24  at 19:15 for 19:30 on Zoom 

Dr Walters will cover a wide range of aspects of having a DNA test – what do the results mean, what are the benefits, what does the jargon mean and the statistics, and what are the implications of the results. She will discuss which are the best tests for particular research and how to mix DNA test results with a paper trail. She will also look at how those who were adopted can be helped to find relatives.

Joining instructions have already been issued to members by email by our secretary, Dave Morris. Please contact him by email on prior to 6 pm on the day of the talk if further information is required.
