Using DNA to Support Family History Research


This talk is aimed at people who want to practically apply DNA insights to their family history research. DNA is the new tool in our toolkit for helping us take our family history further.  Whether it is validating all the work we have already done to confirm if the paper trail matches the biological trail or solving a long standing brickwall, DNA can help with our research.  This talk looks at some of the methods and techniques you can use when working with your DNA results. In addition, little tips will be given along with a few practical examples to help you visualise what you need to do to progress your family history research.

Can't make this time? Book anyway as this talk will be recorded and available to watch for 2 weeks.
