MARCH PROGRAM MEETING
W.O. Haggard, Jr. Library, 2501 Coit Road, Plano, Texas 7:00pm to 9:00pm
* 12 MAR 2008 - Mic Barnette: "DNA for Genealogists and
Historians" -- Who does it? What it is, ain't, will do and won't do.
What about it?
Mic Barnette, owner of Barnette's Family Tree Book Company,
attended Southwest Texas University, now called Texas State
University, where he obtained a degree in history, political science
and education. He has been actively engaged in genealogy since he was
16 years of age. He has written numerous articles which have appeared
in many national, state and local magazines, newsletters and
quarterlies. In addition, for over ten years, from 1994 to 2004, he
penned a widely read award winning historical-genealogical column in
Houston's leading newspaper, the Houston Chronicle. Mic currently
works as a library associate in the Genealogy Department of the
Dallas Public Library and volunteers at the Plano Public Library's
Haggard Library in Plano.
Since the 1980's Mic has conducted professional genealogical
research, taught genealogical classes and lectured on genealogical
topics while residing in New Orleans, Louisiana, Atlanta, Georgia,
and Houston and Dallas, Texas. His research has taken him to every
state of the South, Washington, DC and Salt Lake City. He has
addressed genealogical organizations in nearly every Southern State
and three National Genealogical Society conferences, those of
Portland, Oregon, Houston, Texas and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
As webmaster Mic administers several websites including one
for his online genealogical bookstore, one containing many of his
past columns, the Barnett Surname DNA Project and the Great Galveston
Storm website where he is attempting to identify the 5,000 to 10,000
people who lost their lives in the 1900 Galveston Storm.
Mic is a member of the Sons of the Republic of Texas, the Sons
of the Confederacy, the Sons of the American Revolution and is an
Admiral in the Texas Navy.
