If you haven’t heard of the International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG) – https://isogg.org/, it’s a good group to join if you are into DNA related stuff. With the ISOGG website, you don’t have to be a member to search the website.
The mission of the International Society of Genetic Genealogy is to:
Advocate for and educate about the use of genetics as a tool for genealogical research while promoting a supportive network for genetic genealogists.
How do we accomplish our mission? By educating others about the use of genetics in genealogy. This is done through workshops, our wiki, a speaker’s bureau, our forums, and meetings. Although we do not have regular meetings, meetings are important as they allow for the dissemination of information and help maintain forward momentum. Even though ISOGG members are geographically spread out, we do what is possible to hold meetings at events and online.
Here are two good reasons to join ISOGG – https://isogg.org/joinform.html:
There are NO dues or fees to join, ISOOG is free and entirely self-supporting by its members. YOU choose what you wish to give. This may be your time to give a presentation or host a workshop at your local genealogical society, or create photocopies to promote the society at a convention. You will not be asked to spend your time or contribute to ISOGG. You may join to just learn and network
First, there are no dues or fees. Second, you can contribute as much or as little as you want; that includes not contributing at all if you desire.
They have two (2) groups you can join, but you have to be a member of ISOGG to join the groups. First is a Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/isogg/. The other group is a Yahoo! group: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/DNA-NEWBIE/info. Both groups are full of information about DNA. You can search topics and ask questions.
