ANNOUNCING A GENEALOGICAL PROGRAM SPONSORED BY THE
ST. TAMMANY GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY (STGS)

OCTOBER 1, 2022
Hybrid Meeting: Program will be offered in-person at STPL’s Slidell Branch in Slidell and as a virtual broadcast for those at home


Finding Family: A DNA Case Study

with Clarise Soper, certified genealogist


“Finding Family: A DNA Case Study” begins with a last-surviving son’s quest to discover the truth about his mother’s mysterious adoption — a hundred years earlier. This case has more twists and turns than a gnarled tree branch.  But a well-thought-out research plan and DNA testing results lead to the discovery of the adoptee’s son’s maternal grandparents and their families.

Clarise Soper has been conducting genealogical research for over 30 years and is certified by the Board for Certification of Genealogists.® She specializes in research in the states of Mississippi and Alabama, as well as forensic and genetic genealogy. Clarise, a published author, frequently gives presentations at genealogical and historical societies on a variety of topics. She currently works full-time assisting the U.S. Army Past Conflict Repatriations Branch researching WWII soldiers’ families for repatriation purposes.
