DNA testing for ancestry has exploded in popularity due to aggressive marketing campaigns and lower prices.  However, many people are unsure what to do with their results once they have them in hand. Join Jennifer Stone Randolph, the owner of Touchstone Genealogy, a provider of professional genealogical services with a focus on the use of DNA testing, at Brooks Memorial Library, 224 Main St., Brattleboro on Saturday, January 27, 2018 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. to explore genetic genealogy which combines science, family, and solving mysteries!  Learn the types of information testing provides, its accuracy, and how best to use it to further your family research.  Real-life examples and case studies will illustrate the kinds of questions testing can and cannot answer.  Issues such as privacy, accuracy, the potential for discovery of unexpected results, and the importance of being an informed consumer will also be discussed.
