Legal DNA and Condo Complex Party

I had a busy day today.

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington had a talk by Judy Russell re: legal and ethical implications of DNA. Her key point was the need for informed consent, including the risk of unexpected results, when asking someone to test. She also provided an excellent handout.

I had been concerned about the potential weather but there’s been no snow yet.

Tonight was the annual holiday party at my condo complex. In the past, our complex has done this jointly with the neighboring one (who we share a clubhouse with) but this year it was just us. That made it much less crowded and much quieter. And there was still food when I left a half hour before it ended. That was a huge improvement over all the times that the food ran out in a half-hour or less. I hadn’t realized before that our neighbors are vultures.
