Genetic Genealogy

We are a group of "people helping people" understand

HOW, WHEN, WHERE, and WHY to test.

And Most Importantly WHAT to do with your test results!

Meetings are free and open to the public, everyone is welcome. We will have volunteer presentations covering all aspects of DNA testing, group discussions, and sharing. Together we will learn about Genetic Genealogy.

The Maine Genealogical DIG started in January 2016 due to the passion of Nancy Milliken Mason. Nancy also is the Administrator of the Maine Genealogical Project on FTDNA.
