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 brick walls 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, got Thru lines and a simple family tree on Ancestry. Upload your results to My Heritage for free.

Jane will be joined by Kate Boyle to help with sorting maternal and paternal matches.  Upload your results to My Heritage for free. Please bring laptops or tablets along.
