Beginners and experienced researchers are invited to find out who you are at a free Genealogy Workshop Oct. 11 from 1-5 p.m. at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum at Texas A&M University.

The keynote speaker is Bennett Greenspan, the founder, president and CEO of Family Tree DNA, the largest DNA database in the world and a former official sponsor of NBC's "Who Do You Think You Are?" program.

The workshop lectures will show how to use DNA information to connect with your ancestors, as well as living relatives, and how new advances can allow you to leave your own imprint for future generations.
