Blaine Bettinger Advanced Lectures in Genetic Genealogy @ Lansing United Church | Toronto | Ontario | Canada

These back-to-back lectures by Blaine Bettinger, “The Genetic Genealogist” will cover topics of interest to experienced genetic genealogists.  Blaine will cover the following:

Advanced Third-Party Tools: There are many third-party tools other than GEDmatch. Blaine will look at some of these third-party tools, and how you might use them in your research.

Introduction to Visual Phasing: Visual phasing is the process of assigning segments of DNA to four grandparents using DNA test results from a set of siblings. This session will provide an introduction to one of the most advanced topics in DNA.
