Join genealogy DNA expert Kelly Wheaton, for a lecture at the Carpenter Museum and learn about finding a grave in Rehoboth and beyond.

Kelly is descended from 20 early Rehoboth families. She has 50 years of genealogy experience and 10 years with DNA. She is the author of the free online course, “Beginner’s Guide to Genetic Genealogy.” She manages 7 projects at Family Tree DNA including the first town specific project on Rehoboth. She is an avid gardener and traveler.

In her lecture Kelly will talk about the origins of the Rehoboth DNA project and why the DNA of our town’s Progenitors matters. She’ll help answer the question of why you might want to do a YDNA test and how it can help your own genealogy research or the research of others.
