Jennifer Sheppard, Genealogist for the Lost Colony Research Group, presented a program to the Martin County Historical Society at their meeting on September 23rd in Williamston, NC. Jennifer described how the Lost Colony Research Group is using Genealogy and DNA testing to prove the oral histories that there are living descendants of the Lost Colony living in north eastern North Carolina today. DNA kits were on hand for testing and she assisted one person, Chris Smith, shown in the photo, with collecting his DNA following the presentation. Brenda Monty, another attendee and a reporter for the local newspaper, the Enterprise, photographed Chris taking the DNA test.
