Upcoming Free Webinars #announcements


2 upcoming Webinars that may well be of interest. 

I have no connection with either, but felt they would be good info for many in this group.

Both are free the day of.  The first is likely to be free for 7 days following, the second will probably take a week to be posted, but once posted is also usually free for another week. But I recommend trying live if you can.

by Paul Woodbury    |    Intermediate    |    Advanced    |     DNA     |


General rules of DNA inheritance assume independent genealogical lines. However, cases of endogamy, pedigree collapse and multiple levels of relationship to any given genetic match merit additional considerations for analysis and interpretation. Explore strategies such as segment analysis, targeted testing, anchoring, and variable segment thresholds for overcoming the challenges of endogamy, pedigree collapse or multiple relationships in your DNA test results.
