A professional genealogist will talk on “DNA 201 for Genealogy — Segments, Centimorgans and SNPs” from 2 to 4 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 1 in the Community Room at Darien Library.

An informal social hour for those interested in genealogy will take place from 1 to 2 p.m.

Social Hour at 1 p.m.

Come to the informal social hour to meet others who are interested in genealogy. The goal is to share experiences with fellow genealogists and hopefully gain new insights.

Think of the most important question or issue that you have about your genealogy. It may be a brick wall that you are facing with one of your ancestors, a question of wanting to know where to find a particular resource, or a success that you are dying to share with the rest of us.

Book Exchange

You’re invited to bring in genealogy books and periodicals that you are no longer using and make them available to people who can make use of them.
