Don’t forget, MoCoGenSo does NOT have a monthly meeting in July.
BTW, Ancestry.com is having a big “firecracker” sale (they call it a “flash” sale). You can get good prices, but only for the next 2 days! As they say, “Cheap ancestors for sale”!
Order the DNA test, order 50% off membership account, work like crazy, get addicted to genealogy, and then join us at the next DNA Sig meeting!

This afternoon, June 29, from 1-2 pm, Daniel Spelce will air an interview with Dayna Jacobs on the Family Sparks Family History Radio Hour on KSQD Santa Cruz, 90.7 fm on the radio dial, and ksqd.org streaming live on the internet. Click on the first tab on the home page, LISTEN. Then click LIVESTREAM. That’s live programming.
If you’re not able to listen to the live broadcast, click LISTEN, then AUDIO ARCHIVE. Look up “Family Sparks” for June 29, 1:00-2:00 pm. Then you can listen at your convenience.
We only have 4 more days to preserve their contents.
Roberta Estes of the wonderful DNAeXplained blog has reminded us that DNA Circles are soon going to be a thing of the past.
This is reminder that Ancestry is permanently removing DNA Circles from customer accounts on July 1st. If you have not recorded the information held in your Circles and New Ancestor Discoveries, if you had any, do that NOW.
Circles provide you with information about people who match you that share a common ancestor, but they ALSO show you who else has tested and matches the people you match, but not you. That’s valuable information for numerous reasons. It verifies multiple children of that ancestor genetically and provides you with a genetic network to validate the ancestral connection for all of those people..

” The hard part of standing on an exponential curve is: when you look backwards, it looks flat, and when you look forward, it looks vertical. And it’s very hard to calibrate how much you are moving because it always looks the same.” – Sam Altman
