The Gift of DNA!

Greetings of the season! Need a last-minute gift idea? How about a DNA test kit? You can now find them in stores like Walmart and Target…I know! I’ve seen “23 and Me” kits in Target! It’s also fairly easy to order them online. If you’re not sure which one to choose, there’s a really good article covering all the ins and outs at . So, until next time, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

About Emily Schroeder

Greetings to everyone who’s into genealogy! I’m Emily Schroeder, and I’ve been at Maine State Library since 1980. I just retired this year. My latest incarnation transformed me into the genealogy specialist. I got to visit other libraries and do genealogy workshops, have classes onsite, teach adult ed., write newsletters, join genealogy groups, and generally try to keep myself “in the know”. I’m hoping that through this blog we can share ideas, review resources and databases, and maybe introduce something new to readers in the genealogy field. You can always e-mail me at:
