Presentation:  Color Coding DNA Matches, by Dana Leeds

 

Dana Leeds received a bachelor’s degree in biology education and started doing traditional genealogy twenty years ago. Five years ago, she took a DNA test and now can combine her passions for genealogy, science, and teaching.
 

Early in 2018, Dana started working with her first adoptee case as a “Search Angel.” The list of names was unknown to her, their relationships uncertain, and often they lacked trees. Dana needed a way to sort those matches so she could concentrate on finding relatives who matched this adoptee on her biological father’s side. The Leeds Method was born.

 

Submit your research questions to our panel for the May meeting.  Send them to humbleareagen@gmail.org

 

Our May meeting will be a panel who can give you ideas and feedback on your research problems.  You can ask questions in advance by sending in an email.  Or, bring your questions that night.

 

Newsletter articles needed!!  

 

We would like to publish one more newsletter before summer.  To do that we need articles from you.   How is that personal history coming along?  How about sharing one story from your life with the rest of our members.  Send your submissions to Devon Lee or here to humbleareagen@gmail.org

Awareness of legal actions and how they impact our research

Let's not forget about these issues going on.  The Board will discuss what we can do at our board meeting.

 

Awareness of Bill, Is anyone aware of this bill?

It would keep Birth Certificates unaccessible for 125 years

 

Perhaps we should send letters to the committee members (Texas House Public Health Committee)

We should also ask Harris County Clerk, Dr. Diane Trautman, to take a stand against this bill.
