Using DNA To Solve Interlinked Mysteries - free webinar by Michelle Leonard now available to view for limited time

Using DNA To Solve Interlinked Mysteries - free webinar by Michelle Leonard now available to view for limited time

The recording of today's webinar, "Using DNA To Solve Interlinked Mysteries" by Michelle Leonard is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

Sometimes when trying to solve family mysteries using DNA, we discover that the best matches on the mystery line also have recent mysteries of their own and the connection between the two lies on their respective mystery lines. It’s exciting when there are close DNA matches on a mystery line but, equally, it can be frustrating if those matches also have recent blanks or brick walls and it’s tempting to treat these kinds of matches as dead ends. In this presentation, Michelle will outline some extraordinary case studies where multiple mysteries linked together and only by investigating them all could answers ultimately be uncovered. She will demonstrate the best techniques for navigating these tricky situations and provide her top hints and tips for working with interlinked mysteries. Often if you can solve one interlinked mystery, you can solve them all!
