Welcome to the CCCGS blog.

The purpose of this blog is to promote the Contra Costa County Genealogical Society by announcing upcoming events and reporting on past events. In doing so, I hope it will encourage all who are interested to attend any of our events and meetings, and share in our enthusiasm of genealogical research.

General Meeting - Nov. 8, 2012 - Steve Morse

We have a wonderful treat this month.  Steve Morse will give a presentation on DNA, titled "From DNA to Genetic Genealogy: Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask."  From his speaker's website, he says:
"This talk introduces genes, chromosomes, and
DNA, and goes on to show how DNA is
inherited. That knowledge of inheritance can be
used for finding relatives you didn't know you
had, learning about your very distant ancestors
and the route they traveled, and determining if
you are a Jewish high priest (Kohan). Examples
presented include Genghis Khan's legacy, the
Thomas Jefferson affair, and the Anastasia
mystery."
Come learn a little about DNA and how it might help you with your genealogy research!
LDS Church, 1360 Alberta Way, Concord, California.  Meeting begins at 7 pm.  All are welcome.  No charge.
