The next meeting will be on Thursday Jan 18, 2018 at 7 pm at the LDS Church.

We will start with a Q&A session followed by Mapping DNA Segments to Help Figure Out Your Matches.

In particular, we will be discussing Chromosome Mapping and Painting, and Visual Phasing.

The following are some useful links.

You might also want to look at Autosomal DNA Analysis Tools by Tim Janzen

Much useful information can also be gleaned from the Facebook Group pages at
DNA Painter User Group
and The Visual Phasing Working Group

I would like to ask those who have used one or more of these tools in their research to bring along example to share with the group.

Please contact Vernon Smith to suggest a topic for a future meeting.


We meet each month (mostly) to discuss all aspects of Genetic Genealogy, and to provide a forum for discussion as well as time for answering any related questions.
