DNA and genealogy—Learn the basics!

Toronto Branch is excited to present a new four-part lecture series in May aimed at genetic genealogy beginners.

Maybe you’ve done some DNA testing and now you’re wondering what to do with your matches? Or maybe you’re just thinking about getting your DNA tested and unsure where to start? Either way, you’ll want to sign up for DNA—How It Can Help Your Research.

Our speakers are all members of Toronto Branch and will be sharing their expertise and experience to help you move forward with confidence.

This series will take place over four evenings beginning May 18:

Wednesday, May 18: DNA—What is it and why to use it

Thursday, May 19: Which company to test with and what they give you to work with

Wednesday, May 25: What to do with all those matches

Thursday, May 26: Third party tools and final thoughts

All sessions will be on Zoom beginning at 7:30 pm EDT. Each evening will include several presentations of between 10 and 20 minutes. The sessions will be recorded and available to paid registrants until about June 26.
