Williamson County Genealogical Society - June Meeting Review

On Thursday, Williamson County Genealogical Society had a presentation on DNA by Debbie Parker Wayne (http://debbiewayne.com/).  It was super-well attended, with (I think) 56 people attending, 46 members and 10 visitors.  I had expected less due to summertime.  We ran out of subject handouts as well as "current local events" handouts.  I can't remember the last time that happened.

Debbie was a great presenter and very knowledgable about her topic.  If you get a chance to see her presentation on DNA, take advantage.  Her gingerbread men and gingerbread women showing the mixing of genes were a big hit.

I was the last person out of the library and didn't end up getting home until nearly 10pm.  We've had a number of months with great speakers and attendance.  Next month is on probate records, and the speaker is Teri Flack, treasurer of the Austin Genealogical Society.  Visitors are always welcome!
