On Monday, 26 June, after the AGM, Sue Honoré will talk to Oxfordshire FHS on:
The Oxfordshire DNA and Surname Projects
She will provide an update on the status of the Oxfordshire DNA project and talk about the key types of DNA tests available in 2017. She will also describe the new Oxfordshire surnames project and how members can contribute to this exciting new venture, making it a real community research project. The talk will contain plenty of real life examples of DNA and surnames in Oxfordshire.
