- Today DNA tests go beyond detailing ethnic background; they can also reveal Genetic Communities, i.e. the people, places and migration paths in your family story.

- By combining family trees and historical records with DNA results, deeper insights pinpoint distinct groups with whom you share a story: your people. It’s a more complete picture of what makes you, you.

- Family historian and Ancestry international spokesperson Brad Argent will continue his series of presentations into the concept of identity today. He will outline the more concrete and detailed understandings that are now possible, to show how individuals in family trees bonded with others and responded together to historic forces such as politics, famine, war and immigration.

- It’s not just the story of humanity’s history, but the story of individuals told through the journeys and bravery of those who came before.

You can see the first part of this series of talks held at Central Library in October 2016 on Auckland Libraries YouTube channel.
