Topic: Help!  I just got my Autosomal DNA Results and I'm Confused"


This presentation will provide specific guidance on how to use DNA/Genetic Genealogy as an effective tool in your genealogy tool belt. Gil will provide examples from the four major DNA testing companies to clarify ethnicity estimates and give a detailed review of what matches mean at each company. He will outline the recommended steps to take for prioritizing and contacting your DNA matches. The end goal is to have your match help with your family tree and, hopefully, provide information, photographs, documents, stories, etc., that you don't already have. Gil will review the DNA tests available, what you can expect from the results, and who should test. At the end of the presentation, you will be able to say, "Now I get it...I know what to do."  This is for beginners and people who tested and are just overwhelmed and frustrated.

If you have DNA results and don't know what to do, GIL is the one to listen too! He will walk you through the process to analyze your results.
