MNJGS will present a virtual program featuring Dan Kestrel speaking on Understanding Your DNA Matches, Aug 14, 2022 12:30 PM Central Time #dna #education #events


Understanding Your DNA Matches: Practical Examples

Dan Kestrel has always been intensely curious to learn more about his ancestry. Testing his own DNA as well as the DNA of close relatives on both sides of his family has helped him find long-lost branches of his family tree and reconnect with people in those branches. Although he is not a geneticist, he has successfully helped adoptees find their biological parents through a combination of DNA evidence and good old-fashioned genealogy research. Dan will offer a symphony of practical tips for using Ancestry, 23andMe, My Heritage, FamilyTreeDNA, GEDmatch and other online sources of information to make more sense of many of those unfamiliar names and faces on your DNA match list.
