Chula Vista Genealogical Society Meeting on Wednesday, 24 February Features John Finch

 Wednesday, 24 February 2021, 12 noon

CVGS General Meeting (in a Zoom Video Conference)
John Finch on "The DNA Dynamic”

Before COVID, John's Wednesday morning study room newbies were arriving with a DNA  analysis and with the question, ”what do I do with this, now?” The DNA phenomenon has introduced another tool or resource never before available. It can confirm or deny relationships; it can connect to relationships long inactive; it can suggest potential close relationships, thereby breaking your brick walls. He hopes to examine some of these DNA Dynamics and how you may apply it to your research success.

John has been a member of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society for over twenty years and has served as Library Coordinator, Program Chair and President (2004 -2006 term).

Born and raised in Idaho, he retired from the U.S. Navy, 1980, and San Diego County Probation Dept., 1999. He is married, with three sons, eight grandchildren and four great-grand kids, so far.

John developed an interest in his own family history at a very young age but did not begin an active pursuit of research until after retiring in 1999. Now, he spends several hours each week researching family and awaits reopening of the Chula Vista Library to schedule Wednesday morning sessions to assist new and seasoned researchers.
