Avoiding Genetic Genealogy Pitfalls
Avoiding some of the most basic genetic genealogy pitfalls can save you hours and hours of frustration and lost research time. Together we will examine some of these common pitfalls including not testing close relatives, misunderstanding X-DNA, testing small segments and more.
DNA Frequently Asked Questions
Some questions are asked at every conference and every webinar. Those questions are gathered together here in this webinar along with their answers. Some of the topics covered include: Where should I test? I've tested, now what? Can you extract DNA from hair? Can you test while undergoing chemotherapy? And much more!
Introduction to GEDmatch
The DNA website GEDmatch can be intimidating, so this lecture will start at the beginning and look at some of its basic but very important tools that genealogists can utilize in their research. We will look at the ethnicity tools, the One-to-Many tool, the One-to-One tool, and the X One-to-One tool.
Begging for Spit
You really need that second cousin to take a DNA test, but how do you ask them to take the test? And how do you contact them in the most efficient way possible? Together we will look at some of the ways to accomplish these goals.
Who Are You? Identifying Your Mysterious DNA Matches
There's nothing more frustrating than a match that doesn't have a tree and won't respond to messages. Let's look at some of the ways we can deduce who is behind these barricades and further our research
