What's Your Genetic Genealogy Story? We Want to Know!

Do you have a genetic genealogy story to share? Did you locate your birth parent or a new sibling by using DNA? Were you able to break through a genealogical brick wall with DNA? ISGS Quarterly wants to know!

ISGS Quarterly is looking for personal stories to publish in our official 50th Anniversary issue in Fall 2018. Stories need to have an Illinois connection with a minimum of 300 words and a maximum of 750 words. Narrative format is preferred, no footnotes required. One photo can be included, but it needs to be clear when changed to black and white.

The deadline to submit stories is August 1, 2018.

ISGS Quarterly staff will edit stories. For questions or to submit a story, please contact the Quarterly editor at
