At 10:30 a.m. on both Friday, October 29th and Saturday, October 30th, Dr. David Scott will conduct the third lecture in his genealogy series, entitled, “How to use DNA testing to further your genealogy research.”  To accommodate the expected interest, NHPS is offering the same session on two consecutive days and will limit the number of participants in each session to 25. The lectures will be held at Christ Church Parish Hall in Eastville.  Although this is the third in the series, participants do not need to have attended the previous lectures.  To see if the session you are interested in has reached the 25 limit, please check the Northampton Historic Preservation Society website.

In this current lecture, Dr. Scott will discuss the various DNA tests that are available and explain how you can use those results to advance your genealogical research.  DNA testing can produce results which are difficult to understand or interpret.  This lecture will help immensely.

NHPS is fundraising to restore the historic 1907 jail on the Northampton Court Green for use as a museum and genealogy information center.  In lieu of a registration fee, we hope you will consider donating to the 1907 Jail Restoration Fund.  Register now to hold your spot on either October 29th or October 30th by going to the NHPS website: northamptonhistoricpreservationsociety.com.  Once you have registered, you will receive a confirmatory email from us within a day or two.
