Hi AncestryDNA testers (if you are one?!),


Noreen C. and I are inviting you to a AncestryDNA Matching Workshop - see above day, date, time!


How do I know if I should come?

  1. Just got your test results, have worked with the results for 2-3+ months  and am confused!
  2. Confused about manipulating all the pages on the website? How do they relate to each other and to my research?
  3. What do all the terms mean - Shared DNA, centimorgan, segments, unweighted shared DNA, Extended family, etc.
  4. What matches should I be excited about and what matches should I forget?
  5. Help?

If you answered “Yeah, that’s me!” to any of the statements/questions above this 3 hour AncestryDNA Matching Workshop may be for you!



  1. Learn to use multiple devices: follow Arthur on Zoom while using your own data to learn how to manipulate the AncestryDNA Matching website on your own computer.
  2. Learn how to up-date your profile to communicate better with other researchers - see Arthur’s as example: AS profile on 
  3. Learn how to make a Profile Tree (Ex: me, my parents, and ancestral grandparents as far back as I can go) to put on other websites to attract matches.
  4. Learn how to use terms like: Shared DNA, segments, Longest segment, centimorgan, Shared matches, Triangulation, Full cousins, Half cousins, Endogamy, Generation of Connection (MostRecentCommonAncester -MRCA) etc.
  5. How to use filters, tabs, notes, etc.


If you want to participate in this workshop (limited to 15 people),  send the form provided to register:   Hit the “Send” button when done.

  • This workshop is for people who have worked on the website 2-3 months - not rank beginners.
  • You will receive an acknowledgement.
  • As soon as the class is formed you will start to receive Research Guides.
  • The Resource Guides will guide you through the preparation for the Workshop.
  • If you choose, you don’t have to do anything, but you will not get as much out of the workshop.
  • This is not a DEMO, you will be following along and working with you own data on your own computer.
