The Contra Costa County Genealogical Society is pleased to feature Stephen P. Morse as speaker for the November 8th meeting. Mr. Morse will speak on genetics and genealogy.
Stephen Morse is a well recognized name in technology and genealogy circles. He is the creator of the Intel 8086 chip which sparked the PC revolution. He also created the “One Step” search pages, used by genealogists worldwide, to find everything from ancestors on passenger lists to Holocaust ancestors.
We will be getting a crash course on DNA and its applications in genealogy. Genetics has now become an extremely valuable tool in family history research. We will see the role DNA played in finding the descendants of famous people like Genghis Khan, Thomas Jefferson, and solving the mystery of Anastasia. Please join us for what promises to be a fun and very enlightening speech!
The Contra Costa County Genealogical Society was founded in May, 1975 by several enthusiasts who had attended a Genealogy class in Concord, CA. From that small beginning, the society has grown into an organization of close to 100 members. The Society focuses on all types of genealogy research and is not limited to only Contra Costa County or California.
