Please join us on Sunday, May 22, 2016, for our next program, "Steps
to Success with atDNA and Triangulation," presented by Jim Bartlett.
We'll cover the proven steps that will get you started with autosomal
(at) DNA, and on the path to determining common ancestors with your
matches. Experienced "how-to" guidance on: robust trees; patriarch
list; standard email/message; communicating with matches and sharing;
finding and "proving" common ancestors; and tracking info. Learn the
principles of triangulation, and how to do it with FamilyTreeDNA and
23andMe results and at GEDmatch. No genealogy or biology required -- the
perfect tool for everyone, and particularly adoptees and anyone with
Jim Bartlett has been an active genealogist since 1974. He has been
the Administrator of the BARTLETT-DNA Project (over 400 participants)
since 2002 and has established 23 different lines using matching
Y-DNA. He has been using autosomal DNA tests >from all three main
vendors since 2010 and currently has over 5000 matching cousins who
descend >from most of his ancestry. He has determined common ancestors
for over two-thirds of his DNA. He is an avid fan of these powerful,
new DNA tools that will expand your genealogy and enjoys teaching them
to other genealogists. The DNA test is easy to take, fairly simple to
use, and relatively inexpensive. No biology required!
