The Board of Directors wants you to know that our website will look different in the future.
Due to issues beyond our control, we will be looking for a new website provider. We don’t
know how long the process will take but we will keep you posted as we make progress.
In the meantime, we encourage you to renew your membership.
Your membership dues are an important source of funding for the Society.
If you have already renewed, thank you! We are grateful to you, our loyal members, for your
continued support. If you are not a member, we hope you will consider joining.
Wishing all our members and guests a very Healthy & Happy New Year!

"The Cultural Phenomenon of Home DNA Testing"
4:00 pm to 5:30 pm (ET)
Explore the extraordinary cultural phenomenon of home DNA testing, which is redefining family history. It draws on Libby Copeland’s years of research for her book The Lost Family: How DNA Testing is Upending Who We Are. Virtually all Americans are affected whether they have been tested or not, and millions have been impacted by significant revelations in their immediate families.
