Andre Kearns, a genealogy hobbyist, will present a program at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Muskogee Public Library showing how blacks in America can trace their history using DNA.

Kearns’s research comes from the perspective of an African American genealogy hobbyist. Advances in DNA testing offer African Americans the possibility of leapfrogging brick walls created by slavery to connect to ancestral roots by analyzing family history documented within DNA.

Kearns will share strategies he’s used to advance his research as a hobbyist and highlight how he’s leveraged DNA testing to reveal white slave-owning ancestors, uncover free people of color ancestors and re-connect family branches.

Kearns is a genealogy hobbyist. By day he works in the business and technology world, and holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA in Business Administration from Morehouse College. His website is where he regularly shares his research findings. He also regularly blogs on race, culture, history and genealogy.

A short “How-To” session after the main program includes steps to take to upload your DNA data to GEDMATCH.

Genealogy Society meetings are free and open to the public. For more information: https://www.muskogeecountygenealogicalsociety.org/ or email mucogeso@yahoo.com
