**About our program**
Whenever we approach a genealogical question, we need a plan before starting
our research, which can lead to greater success. Janice Lovelace will share
step-by-step instructions on how to build a research plan for DNA testing. She
will present a case study that touches on the points in her presentation: begin
with identifying the focus of your use of DNA testing and creating a research
question and hypothesis. Ask yourself what type of DNA tests will answer your
research question/hypothesis and identify which relatives you should test. This
session will show you how to build a plan, how you might want to answer
potential research questions or hypotheses, how DNA testing ties into your
paper and/or digital family trees and, finally, how to analyze your findings
and where to go >from there. Whether you are just beginning your genealogy
research or have years of experience, you will easily see the many benefits of
creating a research plan.
