Building a More Inclusive Family Association, Family Tree, and History. A GSBC Program. (online event) Online

Join us before the program for a GSBC General Meeting beginning at 1:30pm ET, where a prize drawing will be held for GSBC members only. The presentation will begin at 2:00pm ET.

The presentation will look at how one family association (the Joseph Vick Family Association of America, Inc.) is attempting to correct its family tree and history by including African American family members who have been left out. Both documentary and DNA evidence is being used to correct past mistakes. A DNA Surprise!

Presented by Larry Vick. Larry Vick is the Treasurer-Registrar of the Genealogical Society of Palm Beach County and a past librarian of the Society. He is also a director of the Joseph Vick Family of America as well as the Association's newsletter editor and DNA committee chair. Additionally, Larry is the administrator of the VICK Surname DNA Project at Family Tree DNA as well as a co-administrator of the Q Nordic Y-DNA project at FTDNA. Finally, he was one of six 23andMe Ancestry Ambassadors.

This presentation will be held online using Zoom.
