DNA – And Family History Research – COURSE FULL
The session will look at DNA results from Ancestry and My Heritage. How can we use these results to help us in our family history research, break down some brickwalls and find long lost cousins. DNA is becoming very popular but a lot of people don’t know what to do with the results, using them like another tool in the kit we use for researching family history. Only suitable for those who have done, and have the results of an Ancestry DNA test and maybe have uploaded those results to My Heritage for free, bring laptops along.
