Law enforcement, genealogists and geneticists are all watching with interest the first criminal trial held here in Snohomish County (“Suspect in 1987 murders — and ‘genetic genealogy — go on grial,” The Herald, June 12).

We can help you put together your story. The Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society is hosting our annual Northwest Genealogy Conference (the largest in Washington state) in Arlington, August 14-17 (Aug. 14 is a free beginning genealogy day) at the beautiful Byrnes Performing Arts Center at the Arlington High School. CeCe Moore (Parabon NanoLabs) was our featured speaker last year. Genetic genealogy and DNA is a new complex subject and we can help you understand more at our conference.
We’re got answers right here in your home town! Check it out at nwgc.org.
