Dr. Elaine Boston will present a lecture on AncestryDNA tests during an 11 a.m. presentation Saturday at the East Baton Rouge Library, 9200 Bluebonnet Blvd.
The presentation, titled “Finding Lost Cousins: Using Your Ancestry.com Results,” will be part of the Canary Islanders Heritage Society meeting.
AncestryDNA is a DNA test that examines one’s unique genetic code for clues about family history, a news release said. Genetic science is then used to determine ethnic origins and family relationships within the database of AncestryDNA members.
Boston received her Doctor of Public Health and Master of Public Health degrees from Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. She received her bachelor of science degree from Northwestern State University.
All meetings are open to the public. Information about the Canary Islanders Heritage Society of Louisiana can be found at canaryislanders.org or email the society president at email@example.com.
