Conference Monday, GerSIG Day is Tuesday! #germany

Dear GerSIG members

Today there were no formal GerSIG interest sessions on the agenda, so
the time between the other talks people wanted to attend was spent
gathered in groups in the lobby areas of conference. GerSIG members
were, as ever pouring over laptops to explore potential cousin
relationships, new resources, resources they hadn't discovered before,
and of course DNA matches. Several of us also took advantage of the
opportunity to attend talks on methodology, dna and on genealogy
tools.

Your GerSIG DIrectors took some time today to prepare for tomorrow's
GerSIG content. Here are the sessions for Tuesday, we will report
back as soon as we can.
