The format of this workshop will loosely follow that used by Paul Woodbury in the Family Tree Webinar, Evaluating Shared DNA. Note that you will need a subscription to watch this webinar.
We have members with a range of experience levels and we want to accommodate everyone, so come prepared to share your experiences no matter what level you are at.
If you have something that you would like explained, do not be afraid to ask. We encourage everyone to speak out, no matter what level of experience they have. Those with more experience love the opportunity to discuss these issues, and we all learn something.
Please contact Vernon Smith if you would like to request a topic for this or any other meeting.
