Keeping an Open Mind on Your DNA Results and Organizing Your Matches with the Color Coding Method

At our October meeting, DNA SIG member Rob Boston will take us through his interesting case study on how he was challenged to reconsider his previous paper research when he received some interesting Y-DNA and autosomal DNA matches. 

He has also started to use a color coding method for his DNA matches that has become very popular over the past several months.  Rob will show us how the basics of color coding can help us sort our DNA matches.

Behind the Doors and into the Boxes  (Meetings)
6:45 pm to 9:00 pm
Northland Public Library Meeting Room
David Grinnell, Coordinator of Archives and Manuscripts at the Archives & Special Collections Department at the University of Pittsburgh's Library System, will speak this evening on the collections and resources that are of value in genealogical and family research in the archives at Pitt. Since archival resources can seem hidden to the public, Grinnell will present various tools that promote access discovery in archives, and also discuss the strengths of the collections in Pitt's archives.
 
Prior to his arrival at Pitt, Grinnell was the Chief Archivist at the Library and Archives Division at the Senator John Heinz History Center. A Michigan native, he graduated from Albion College with a Bachelor's degree in History. In 2007, he received a Master's in Library and Information Sciences from the University of Pittsburgh. Prior to these professional positions, he worked in retail sales and eventually became a library clerk in a public library in the Pittsburgh area. These non-professional positions have greatly influenced his professional outlook on the functions of libraries and specifically archival repositories.
 
In addition to his professional work, Grinnell engages in a variety of volunteer activities, including: Archivist for the United Methodist Church; Secretary of the Board of Directors of the Allegheny City Society (a neighborhood historical organization); President of the Grinnell Family Association of America, and Member of the Steering Committee of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference.
