Will help us add DNA to our genealogy toolboxes.
Saturday, May 12, 2018 All-Day Seminar Topics:
- Using Autosomal DNA for 18th and 19th Century Mysteries
- Using Third-Party Tools to Analyze Autosomal DNA – Tools available at sites other than your testing company for DNA analysis.
- The Danger of Distant Matches – What are common pitfalls when analyzing DNA? What are the minimum requirements for genealogical proof using DNA?

July’s meeting will be a workshop – we’ll have a laptop and flip scanner and we’ll learn how to take photos and imbed them into your word documents. Bring a few photos if you’d like to scan them. Email your document and digital photos to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’ve already got them scanned. We’ll work on it adding photos to documents together using the TV in the room for all to see.
We meet in the small room next to the kitchen at Cafe Express – you are welcome to eat dinner there (at your expense) but that is not required. We share the cost for the room (about $5 a person or less depending on how many attend.)
If we have time we’ll do a reading or two – we’ll see how it goes. Hope to see you there!
We will be reviewing Chapter 6, Autosomal-DNA (atDNA) Testing, of The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy, by Blaine T. Bettinger. It is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions: The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy
