Learn how use to expand your family tree on Saturday, February 12 at 10 a.m.  In his presentation “Navigating,” biologist and genetic genealogist Robert Sliwinski will teach participants how to use MyHeritage’s discoveries tool as well as discuss the DNA portion of the website.  This program will be broadcast via Zoom.  Participants can watch from home or in the lower level meeting room at the Frankfort Community Public Library. 

Originally from Chicago, Illinois, Robert has a B.A. in biology and art from Knox College and an M.S. in zoology from Western Illinois University.  As the founder of DNA Explorers, he provides professional services to those who have taken paternal (Y-DNA), maternal (mtDNA), and autosomal DNA tests for ancestry purposes and need assistance with interpretation.  In his genetic genealogy presentations, Robert takes the subject of genetics and makes it easier to understand with colorful graphics and funny stories.
