DNA Interest Group 2024

June 23 @ 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM AEST

Event Series Event Series (See All)



The DNA Group launched in May 2015 and has now grown to over 100 members. GSQ members are welcome to join our monthly meetings as well as our closed Facebook group. Because our meetings are usually attended by 30 – 40 members we meet currently only via Zoom and an invitation with the meeting link goes out about five days before the event. It is planned that post-COVID they will be hybrid meetings to allow participation of all our members. During the meeting we have a presentation on recent updates in the DNA world, usually one other presentation and Q&A sessions. Another feature of the group is the Mentoring sessions where those attending decide which Zoom room they’d like to join to learn more about a specific subject ie DNA general, DNA Painter, Clustering, Y-DNA/FTDNA, MyHeritage/23&Me/Ancestry etc.

GSQ members with DNA problems can arrange a one-on-one virtual help session with one of our admin team during our DNA Clinic nights on the 5th Wednesday of specific months from 7 – 8:30pm. Dates can be found in the GSQ Events calendar.

Meetings are held on the 4th Sunday of every second month and begin at 9:30am sharp, with the Zoom room open to login from about 9:15am most months. These are long meetings and can go up to 1.30pm depending on needs. – 2024 – 25 Feb; 28 April; 23 June; 25 Aug; 27 Oct;

If you wish to join our group then further information is available from the convenor, Greg Carlill by emailing  dna@gsq.org.au
