“Using DNA in Your Genealogical Research”
Anita Anderson Lustenberger, CG, is a certified genealogist specializing in
the Hudson Valley. She is also a certified genetic counselor. She has
lectured at many local, regional, and national conferences, and has had
articles published in national journals. She is a trustee of NYG&B, NEHGS

DNA analysis can pick up where the paper trail ends. It is not a substitute
for traditional research but it is a very useful new tool that can
supplement it. If the studies are constructed correctly, DNA analysis can
test hypotheses, confirm lineages, and suggest where the genealogist should
focus future research.
This GSNJ program is free of charge and open to the general public.
Reservations are suggested in order to ensure adequate seating. Please send
email to: by November 7, 2003.
