With the advent of affordable mail-in DNA tests and websites dedicated to helping you search for ancestors from the comfort of your own couch, it is easier than ever to trace your family back in time. But how do you start? Is it better to buy a DNA test or sign up on a website? What do you do if you get stuck? Join professional genealogist Rachel White and learn how and where to start and what you can do if you need help. Free program, light refreshments will be available.
