ETGS Monthly Meeting and Presentation
Saturday, October 10
ETGS Monthly Meeting and Presentation  (Meetings)
2:00 pm
Location: your computer or phone!
After a short meeting, our program will be a pre-recorded informative presentation by Janine Cloud - "Birds of a Feather – Y-DNA Research and Group Projects".
 
ETGS Members will be emailed the ZOOM address for the online meeting from info@etgs.org.
 
Y chromosomal DNA passes only from father to son, but while the path of inheritance is simple, choosing which Y test to take  can be confusing, and using the results once you have them can be even more confusing. Group projects can help alleviate some of that confusion as well as help focus research through comparison with other testers beyond simple one-to-one matching.
 
Janine Cloud started on the phones at FamilyTreeDNA in 2011 and created the Group Projects team, which she now manages, in 2014. She is also the event coordinator for FTDNA and has given DNA talks at the local, regional, and national level since 2015. A fifth-generation Texan, Janine is a registered member of the Cherokee Nation.
