A crash course on DNA testing will be offered through Pelican Rapids Community Education, on March 4.

There has been widespread publicity about the $99 test that will show you where you’re from and who your ancestors are and wondered what it was all about.

The instructor of the class, Joyce Burnham, has devoted several hundred hours to researching family genealogy, and has taken the test herself.

Burnham will explain the process of taking this test, what you can do with the results and other ideas on how to start researching your family roots.

Interested participants may also want to look at taking the Ancestry.com class also offered this session.

The class is Saturday, March 4, 10-11:30 a.m. at the PRHS English Room B206. (Enter west door #8 and follow signs.)

The class is offered through Pelican Rapids Community Education. There is a fee. To register, call 218-863-5910, Ext. 4250.
