MacAoidh Research Project: Phase 1 -- Basic Y-DNA Analysis
 
Rudy Ramsey is a retired software ergonomist, designer, and developer. He has some 30 years' experience in genealogy, and is currently leading a group of researchers who are trying to determine the exact connections of their related lines, using DNA techniques as well as traditional genealogy. This presentation describes a portion of that research. Of particular interest to members of the CRGS DNA study group, the presentation will use that project as a vehicle for a tutorial about Y-DNA analysis.
 
Required text is Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy by Blaine Bettinger. The reading for February is Chapter 5 in the new edition, yDNA.

Rectangular Survey System: Fair & Square  (Class)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Online - Zoom
Presented by Alice Hoyt Veen, CG
 

Federal lands have been surveyed according to a “rectangular” or “cadastral” survey system since 1785. If your ancestor patented public domain land, chances are his property was surveyed using this method, and probably was later sold or divided in much the same manner. This presentation includes hands-on practice reading and platting rectangular property descriptions.
