Our First California Company’s 2018 Winter Meeting will be held Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 11:30 AM at the Salt Creek Grille. 32802 Pacific Coast Highway, Dana Point, CA 92629 (location and directions below).
The general membership meeting will be followed by luncheon (selections below) and the program on how to decode the confusing terms of DNA.
We will welcome Cheri Mello, Family Tree DNA Administrator, who will discuss Deciphering the DNA Soup.
You have had your DNA tested, now, how do you use that tool to connect to your ancestors? Cheri will unlock the answers you have always wondered about and provide case studies that have used DNA to overcome brick walls that stood since the 1950s. You won’t want to miss this program!
Cheri Mello began dabbling in genealogy as a 5th grader with the U.S. History assignment. She began her active adult research over 25 years ago, after the death of her remaining grandparents. Her expertise ranges from various areas of America, to Portugal, as well as DNA, genealogy software, Find A Grave, and more!
Luncheon selections include Oven Roasted Salmon w/Ponzu Sauce; Oven Roasted Chicken w/Bacon/Mushroom jus Sauce; Herb-Marinated Grilled Flank Steak (served medium rare to medium) and Roasted Portobello Mushroom (vegetarian choice.)
The total cost is $40 per person.
