    DNA Class 2 – I have my DNA results; now how do I use them?

     This class assumes that all attendees have taken a DNA test and have had an opportunity to work with the results, even if only in a limited way.  We’ll expand on the use of autosomal DNA testing in genealogical research using results from Ancestry.com.  We’ll also work with the chromosome browser in the autosomal test, which will bring in three other companies - 23andMe, MyHeritage, and FamilyTreeDNA. AncestryDNA has no chromosome browser.  (GEDMATCH/GENESIS will be covered in DNA Class 3.)  We’ll discuss the use of Y-DNA and Mitochondrial DNA testing in genealogical research by using the FamilyTreeDNA (FTDNA) site.

    Featuring Kim Richardson

    Join us for our annual Fall Seminar, as we present Kim Richardson of Southern Heritage Genealogy.  Her program will include sessions on What makes a source a "good" source? How do you know it's reliable? How do you evaluate your research to know that it is solid? A session concerning Mind Mapping as a great tool to utilize in finding new avenues of research. Finally, a session on why a brick wall is not the end of the line for research. She will explore ways to determine if more research can be done to solve your problem,
     and analyze the documents you have to make sure you've followed every lead to the fullest.
