Meeting ID: 842 8701 7406
DNA analysis for genealogical research has taken hold in the last few years. There are over 20 million people who have their DNA posted on Ancestry, another 10 million or so on 23andme, and numerous others. There were 26 million tests done in 2019 alone. DNA Analysis for genealogy purposes can be a confusing and daunting subject, and George has had a number of sessions on explaining how it all works. Don’t give up on trying to understand this subject, because DNA research will only improve and grow in importance as the years go by.
This discussion will start with an overview of how DNA testing works to give information on your family genealogy. We’ll move on to a discussion of important analyses that you can do with a focus on the big 4 sites: Ancestry, 23andme, FamilyTree DNA, and MyHeritage. Then it will be time for those of you who have done DNA testing to discuss your successes, questions, and problems.
