DNA to solve history mysteries!

From Sunday Morning, 10:05 am on 7 August 2022

This coming week the Auckland Libraries and the Genealogical Computing Group are running a Family History Expo, to be shortly followed by the Christchurch City Libraries later this month. Mia Bennett's speaking at them.

Mia's a professional genealogist who lives in Gloucestershire in England. She's been researching her own family history for more than a quarter of a century and she specialises in using DNA to solve her and other peoples' family history mysteries.
