As for topics, what you have been running is fine with me. I am always willing to give a presentation on a wide range of DNA topics. I gave a more advanced one at the 5th Internation Conference of Genetic Genealogists in Houston this spring that I would be glad to give. I can also give a presentation of the very basics of DNA testing (somewhat along the lines of what I gave to you before).

          I attend when I can but missed Sept as I was (and am) out of town.  Dolly Madison is a good location for me  Fairfax City second choice.

           

          As my calendar now stands I plan to attend Oct and Nov but will miss Dec.

            Thanks for keeping this SIG going.  I continue to be interested in Genetic Genealogy and should be able to attend future meetings.  Dolly Madison Library is great for me.  I was unable to attend the September meeting because of a conflict.

              Hello, Jim,

              I'm Marie Rundquist of Independence Avenue, the GW Parkway, 495 and I270 -- where I live in Gaithersburg. Even with a carpool, and access to the HOV lanes, I am finding that making a 7:00 p.m. engagement ANYWHERE in this town is impossible -- Try as I might, I can't make it any further than Old Georgetown Road by that time. The move to Northern Virginia I had anticipated for my Government client never worked out -- we are still downtown (my client and I). My extracurricular availability for week night activities is nil ... and this I regret as I did enjoy your group and participating in it was a shot in the arm.

              I'm engaged heavily with my Amerindian Ancestry out of Acadia FTDNA Project -- we're at 126 members now and showing a strong Amerindian trend in the Y haplogroups for our participants, with the C3b haplogroup, the only known Native American subgroup of Haplogroup C showing up in the matches for 5 of our participants. I am coordinating my data with the other C/C3 Administrator through Roberta Estes, who is engaging in further research of the Haplogroup C. We have posted 5 FGS results to the NIH Genbank and continue to put our markers on the map this way.

              I continue to meet my maternal ancestor Anne Marie descendants through our project - and just attended two Mi'kmaq-Acadian festivals in Nova Scotia where her descendants can be found living in the villages along the Southern Coast. What a wonderful time we had up there this year -- eating the Moose Meat, Mussels, Bar Clams, and Eel..visiting with cousins and exchanging stories...how great it is to be alive in your heritage!

              An email circular would be great -- I can read better late at night. I am simply unable with my schedule and work to participate in anything early evening. I am "evening disabled," I suppose - based on this ridiculous Fall/Winter commuting schedule.

              Best to everyone!

              Marie Rundquist

                Jim,

                1) Are you interested in future meetings of the SIG. If not, I can
                remove you from the mail list.

                I am interested.

                2) If you did not attend the last meeting, was it because of lack of
                interest in the announced subject? Conflict is schedule? Went to the
                wrong location? Difficulty of getting to Dolly Madison? Other?

                Conflict right before a Labor Day weekend trip and after taking daughter to college prior weekend.

                3) Do you have suggestions for meeting place? Change of schedule?
                Future meeting subjects? Possible presenters?


                DM is okay. Personally prefer Fairfax City since I'm in Springfield. The parking is plentiful in the garage and the lighting is excellent. Not hard for someone to take training to close after a late meeting.(I just came back from Old Dominion SIG tonight)

                Thanks.

                  Hi Jim and all,

                  I am of course interested in future meetings of the SIG. I've been to most of them, including the one this month. I prefer the Dolly Madison location over Fairfax City. Getting to the latter would involve going out with late rush hour traffic. But I could make it.

                  There were probably several reasons for the small turn-out at the last meeting, mainly that it was at a new location and was pre-Labor Day.

                  The problem of presentations is more difficult. Most of those of us in the group who give them have already done so more than once. Getting outside presenters might depend on getting a larger attendance.

                  Bill

                      Greetings:

                      If you received this email, it is because you ar on the mail list for
                      the GenGen-NV group at Yahoo. This mail list was established to support
                      the Surname Projects and Genetic Genealogy SIG of the Fairfax
                      Genealogical Society. I would appreciate a response from each of you
                      indicating your level of interest and providing suggestions for future
                      courses of action.

                      Furthermore, our last meeting was held on the 2nd of September at the
                      Dolly Madison public library in McLean VA with a change of venue from
                      Tysons Corner. Only three persons in were attendance. I would like to
                      know why.

                      2) If you did not attend the last meeting, was it because of lact of
                      interest in the announced subject? Conflict is schedule? Went to the
