Genealogy Association Brings Knowledge to Attendees

The North Texas Genealogical Association gave the public an informative seminar on the importance of the family portrait.  Healthcare workers and experts of genealogy taught attendees how DNA is used in research of family history and how family health portraits are useful to their healthcare provider.

It was held Saturday morning at the Wichita Falls Public Library for $27 and included a free lunch.
"Genealogy is really a great study of time and history.  It's just nice to know where you came from and if you leave it for someone, where they're going to go," said Joan Gray with the organization.  They meet the first Thursday of every month on the second flood of the Wichita Falls Public Library and have programs, speakers, and fellowship.
