CeCe Moore, the genetic genealogy consultant for the PBS television series “Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.,” will be lecturing from 8:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 7 at the Allen County Public Library, 5630 Coventry Lane.

Moore primarily focuses on promoting genetic genealogy education while sharing stories about the power of genetic genealogy through the media. She has been featured on shows such as “20/20,” “The Dr. Oz Show,” “Good Morning America” and “CBS This Morning.”

“The Genealogy Center of the Allen County Public Library and the Allen County Genealogical Society of Indiana cooperate on a number of programs throughout the year,” said Curt Witcher, genealogy center manager. “Moore’s visit is a highlight of (their) lineup for October because it is such a popular topic and CeCe is a nationally recognized expert.”

Since October is Family History Month, the genealogy center is having at least a presentation per day, Witcher said.

Moore will give four lectures between 8:45 a.m. and 5 p.m.: “I Have My Results, Now What?”; “Autosomal DNA: Discovering Your Ancestors in You”; “Discovering the Genealogical Roots of Adoptees with DNA”; and “Jefferson /Hemings: Revealing the Truth Through DNA.”

The online registration deadline for this event is Oct. 1, and the link to the registration form, along with other relevant information, can be found on the event’s Facebook page, “A Day with CeCe Moore.” Mailed registrations must be postmarked before Sept. 23.

The cost of this event is $40 for genealogical society members and $70 for nonmembers. Membership, which is optional and offers other discounts, costs $25 and is valid until June 30, 2018. Box lunches will be available for an additional $10.
