The recording of Wednesday's webinar by Michelle Leonard, "Using DNA to Solve Adoption and Unknown Parentage Mysteries" is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

There are some mysteries traditional research can never solve. DNA testing, however, has revolutionised the options available to adoptees and those with unknown parentage or other unknown ancestors. This webinar will explain how to use DNA results to solve these previously unsolvable mysteries. Michelle will illustrate the entire process from choosing the correct tests and testing companies through to making contact with newly identified relatives. She will outline how to use DNA cousin matching when you have no known family history to draw upon and give a practical demonstration of the most important techniques and best practices for successfully identifying birth parents or other unknown ancestors. Through the use of illustrative case studies and success stories Michelle will show how DNA testing used in conjunction with traditional research methods can provide much sought after answers for adoptees and anyone looking to solve an unknown ancestor mystery.
