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!
