Virtual DNA Group Meeting - April 20, 2023

  • April 20, 2023
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Online


We are going through the book,

Tracing Your Ancestors Using DNA: A Guide for Family Historians

We will be going through this chapter by chapter, and we hope that this approach will appeal to a wide audience, including those who have yet to try DNA testing as an adjunct to their genealogy research.

For the next Virtual meeting on Thursday, April 20, 2023 at 7 pm, we will be taking a break from going through the book so that we can provide some additional topics relating to Autosomal DNA.

This month we shall be dealing with Special Topics & Tools including the third-party sites DNAPainter and GEDmatch.

DNAPainter has Help information HERE.
You can obtain some informational material about GEDmatch HERE.
You are also encouraged to read this post by Louise Coakley.

Tips for Using GEDmatch

Blaine Bettinger has a video on GEDmatch One-to-One Comparisons

If you want to get the maximum benefit from the meetings, it would be a good idea to purchase the book and read the relevant chapter before the meeting.

If you need help preparing the materials for this, please attend one of our Mentoring Sessions on Tuesdays at 1pm, and we can assist you.

One of the principal authors, Michelle Leonard, recently gave the webinar "The Top 10 DNA Do's and Dont's ", and I encourage you to watch this free webinar (click on the name).
