The founding meeting is open to anyone who has experience or an interest in using DNA for genealogical or family history research.  Its goal is to establish a forum for:
    •    sharing and comparing results of research in genetic genealogy
    •    encouraging the use of genetic genealogy within the British Isles with a particular focus on Scotland (anyone within reach of Glasgow is welcome to attend)
    •    administrators of DNA surname, geographical and haplogroup projects to exchange ideas on project management and interpreting results
    •    helping people who have taken genetic DNA tests to make sense of their test results and what they might mean for their genealogical research
    •   
Further details and a working agenda will be posted in due course.  In the meantime, please contact genDNAscotland@gmail.com for further information or to register an interest in attending, or enter your name and email address in the comment form below and send in your question.
