DNA Special Interest Group 

This group focuses on learning the methods for analyzing DNA test results. We study topics such as autosomal DNA, mitochondrial DNA, Y-DNA and surname projects, X-DNA and ancestral admixture results. We'll also investigate third-party tools for analyzing your raw data and comparing DNA and gedcom data with test kit results from companies besides the one you tested with.

DNA can break down genealogical brick walls once thought impenetrable – but only if you know how.

ThIS SIG will combine short 15-20 minute lectures with interactive workshop-style activities.  

Get ready to put your DNA results to work for you!

Facilitators Dr. David Stumpf and Michelle Wilson, plus Marty Acks on 11Apr
