The DNA Research Group is an ideal forum for both beginners and the more experienced to share practical ways to work with test results, aimed at those who are serious about interrogating their results further. Whilst we welcome beginners, some pre-knowledge of basic DNA concepts is presumed as this is a collaborative working group. Before you attend a Research Group meeting you should have at least a basic awareness of the concepts covered in the DNA Research, Key Concepts webinar. SAG members are reminded they can join the DNA Research Group private ‘blog' which provides members with links to a range of different sites to help you with your DNA research and to ask questions of other members. If you wish to join the blog please contact the convenor Veronica Williams via email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Using pedigrees and ‘one world trees' to advance your DNA research

DNA tests are one thing, but to be successful in DNA research you need to also employ traditional research methods. The session will explore the different ways to access pedigree information for your DNA matches to help with your research. The session will mainly focus on the free one world tree ‘Wikitree' and the ‘GWorks’ tool at DNAgedcom.
