Need help with starting to solve your DNA dilemmas? Have you tested with Ancestry DNA and want to understand how to work with your results?
Join Christine Woodlands and other members of the SAG DNA Discussion Group for a 7 part course designed to assist you to understand the information you can glean from your Ancestry DNA matches.
The program is delivered in four modules. We’ll see how brick walls can come crashing down by using a three prong approach to solving DNA dilemmas at AncestryDNA - grouping your matches, building research trees at Ancestry and using the 'What are the odds?’ tool at DNA Painter. When participants are comfortable with the approach, they can apply it to the other testing sites and GEDmatch.
Module 1 and 3 presentations will be prerecorded and available for participants to watch for a two week period. Participants must be available to attend Module 2 and 4 presentations via Zoom as they will not be recorded. Module 2 will be presented from 10am to 12.30pm (Sydney time) on Saturday 3 February 2024. Module 4 will be presented from 10am to 12.30pm (Sydney time) on Saturday 2 March 2024. There will also be three optional two and a half hour discussion session presented via Zoom that will not be recorded.
We’re limiting the number of participants to twenty as this allows everyone to get the most out of the program.
