Longtime genealogist Steve Perkins will demystify Y-DNA, mtDNA and Geno.2 0. He also has answers to the “eternal” question of whether Maplewood’s Ball family was kin to George Washington’s.

From 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. visitors will also be able to view, After the Hickories: Roosevelt Park, a major research exhibit on the history of the Roosevelt Park section of Maplewood, for the last time and the Country Store will be open, with its unique selection of souvenirs and books.
