The Northern New York American Canadian Genealogical Society’s (NNYACGS) Fall Conference has been set for Friday through Sunday, September 28-30, 2018, at the Dannemora Civic Center in Saranac, Clinton County, NY. The Conference will feature three days of genealogical talks and research.
On Friday and Sunday, the genealogical library will be open from 10 am to 4 pm for free research. Saturday, the 29th is reserved for two sessions.
The first presentation, starting at 10 am, will be by Ed McGuire, who will speak on DNA Testing. McGuire has spoken extensively on the subject and will cover such subjects as the key tools on each DNA Testing company’s websites; how to determine shared DNA with your matches; the three common levels of interest in the matches lists; analysis of spreadsheets; advanced tools and techniques to consider; and where to get the best advice. McGuire will include a question and answer period for people to question him about their particular results.
Lunch will be available at the Civic Center by donation. It consists of Michigans, coleslaw, macaroni salad, chips, soda and cookies.
The afternoon session, starting at 1 pm, will be by local musicians, Bob Robidou and Annemarie Petrashune. They will present a workshop and demonstration on French-Canadian music. Bob and Annemarie have played at our conferences before, but this will be the first time they will give a workshop. With so many people having French- Canadian connections, the music of our grandparents should nostalgic and be of interest to all.
The Dannemora Civic Center is located at 40 Emmons St, Saranac, NY.
