Viewers' comments

  • You have "solved" an avenue. I might use to try to connect our two families which we cannot documentally connect as the church records stop. The two progenitors (GGGgrandfathers) lived a few kilometers apart, with the same surname so we are "convinced" they might be "brothers".
  • Wonderful information about the dna tests and how they can help your genealogical searches. Thank you!
  • Very well presented; though the content was advanced, Ugo did an excellent job of explaining it in layman's terms.
  • Very good explanation of complicated subject. Also, good hints on testing to find information on collaterals so you know whom to test.
  • This webinar was absolutely fascinating.  I knew nothing about DNA (I have been avoiding it) and now I am wanting to jump right in.
  • I was mezmerized by this information. It was well presented and provided a wealth of information that was easily understood. Many thanks to Ugo Perego and his company for their service. I greatly enjoyed the webinar.

I'm really frustrated that I have to watch a video to get the information. Aren't they available in a format for deaf? If so, please publicize the link.

Thank you.
