The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania Presents
MARGARET NICHOLSON, Ph.D. Author 
My Surprise Family: Find Your Ancestry Story

Margaret M Nicholson, previously a native of Pennsylvania, moved, 15 years ago, to St. Augustine, Florida, the move prompted by the birth of her grandchild. Creating a family tree for him sparked her interest in genealogy. After more traditional research, she turned to DNA and then learned that the father who raised her was not her biological father.

Using her experience as a case study, she will demonstrate the software features useful for identifying unknown relatives and explain how to use DNA matches to confirm a lineage in a family tree.  Her story involved a surprise father, so more time and effort were required to find paternal relatives and build a family tree. The process is essentially the same, even if you don’t receive a surprise with your DNA results. She has become proficient at using Ancestry.com’s DNA results and family tree hints and enjoys sharing her expertise with others. Margaret hopes her book about solving her mystery will provide help for many others.
