This presentation takes understanding the DNA report to the next level. We will touch on the Ancestry DNA Ethnicity Report, but more importantly, we will calculate found matches, evaluate the degree of relationship, and compare DNA from Matches, ThruLines, and Parent1 and Parent2. This course is geared for those who are beyond beginner and looking to build a greater knowledge of the power of genetics in genealogy.
Colonial Research: Proving/Disproving an Undocumented Family Line
Many families take great pride in their colonial ancestral lines. This presentation examines the research plan and process of proving such a family line from Ohio back to the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Online research is always helpful, but results of offline research at archives, repositories and libraries should not be forgotten for the thrill of documentation. Anyone who is interested yet reluctant about beginning colonial research, this presentation hopes to take away the worries and replace it with wonder.
