The X and Y of Our DNA presented by Steve Read
DNA was once a topic of discussion only for scientists, but now it is a household word. From television shows to books to genealogy, DNA is a part of our lives. In this program, Steve Read, Director of the McPherson Public Library, will talk about how DNA is helping historians and genealogists gain a better understanding of the truth. He will also discuss DNA testing, including the types of tests available and some of the myths which have arisen about interpreting the results.
Steve Read holds a B.A. in both History and Biology from Kansas Wesleyan University and an M.A. in Librarianship from the University of Denver. He has been assisting people with researching their family history for over 30 years.
