The LCC Science Department Presents Café Scientifique

Tuesday, September 19, 2017 - 7:00pm

Join us for our monthly science discussion group, presented by the Lansing Community College Science Dept! This months’ subject is Genealogy in the Internet Age: It's more than just ancestors.

We have all seen the ads for, for 23 and Me and others that want to help us trace our ancestry both within the United States and overseas.  Tracing your ancestors can be an enjoyable and sometimes surprising experience, but today you can do much more; actually beginning to reassemble details of your ancestor's lives and family history using internet and other resources outside of the traditional genealogy world.  Tom Deits will talk about some of these resources illustrated by some of his own family history discoveries, covering WWII in the Pacific, the early history of photography, whaling, the Civil War, the Mutiny on the Bounty and more.
