Genealogy Questions & Answers
Moderator: Nancy Wallander
Monday, February 28th
Morning session 10 am – 12:00 pm
Afternoon session 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Our meetings are fun, educational, supportive gatherings open to all Laguna
Woods residents who have an interest in genealogy and creating a lasting legacy of their own unique family history. All are welcome from the curious, to the more advanced in family history research, including genetic genealogy.
The class will address genealogy questions submitted by class participants. The genealogy related questions cover a wide range of topics from
“Where is the best place to look for my ancestor’s information?”,
“How does a DNA test help me find my adopted father’s biological parents?”, to “
How do I correct a mistake in my family tree?”
Genealogy is all about asking questions and searching for the answers. We hope you will join our group of beginners, intermediate, and advanced family researchers for an informative class.
Nancy Wallander is an amateur genealogist with over twenty years’ experience building her family tree using both traditional and genetic genealogy. She is a member of international and local genealogy societies and organizations. She has vast experience utilizing record repositories and databases. As a volunteer administrator of eight DNA projects, she has collaborated with family researchers to help break down brick walls.
