DNA for Beginners: Starting to use your DNA results in your Family History


Now you have reviewed your results, how do you use them to help progress your family history research? This talk follows on from DNA for Beginners: test taken, Now What? in allowing you to actively use your results to advance your family history research.

This may be by validating your already established research, by breaking down those recent brickwalls or, sometimes, creating a whole new biological family tree which diverges from your paper trail tree. In all three cases, there are tools and techniques that will help you progress.

This pre-recorded talk will explain how to use some of these tools and techniques and help you know where to go as you want to advance further.
