DNA Special Interest Group - 18 Nov 2023

Today's Topic: Case Study - TBA

We like to end the year with a relatable, story-type account of how DNA helped break through a brick wall or put a family back together. Do you have a case you would like to share? Contact Michelle and we will consider your case for our year-end SIG meeting.

About the DNA SIG

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 endeavors to be interactive and welcomes your questions. Get ready to put your DNA results to work for you!

SIG Lead: Michelle Wilson

Future Topics: If you have a topic you would like to present or see presented, please reach out to Michelle at DNA @
