    Join Clayton Library staff member Franklin Smith for this fourth discussion session on autosomal DNA research. Previous sessions covered the basics of DNA testing, now we continue discussing 3rd party DNA tools. In this session learn to use these tools to determine how matches connect to you and each other through organizing, clustering, and networking your matches. While open to all experience levels, this discussion group is best for beginners who have completed a DNA test and are unsure what to do with their test results.

    Reservations required, please call 832-393-2600. Adults/Teens.
