Did you just get a Genealogy DNA kit this holiday season? Not sure how to research records to search for family members?

The Athens-Clarke County Heritage Room welcomes you to this free, informal session. Getting started with Genealogy will introduce you to the many resources available to you when researching your family history, no matter where your family might have originated or be today.
