"With over 2.5 million people in the possession of a DNA test, and most with match lists in the thousands, many are wondering how to keep track of all this data and apply it to their family history."
My thoughts exactly Diahan Southard. That is how she introduced one of her two brand new Quick Reference PDF guides. Having now tested myself, my father, my father-in-law, two grandfathers, and one grandmother, I'm starting to feel a little overwhelmed both with my match lists and with knowing how to effectively take the next step. That's why I'm excited for these two new guides.
