DNA SIG-Virtual via ZOOM
DNA SIG-Virtual via ZOOM  (Special Interest Groups)
Saturday, June 29
10:00 am to 11:30 am
 
Inviting the Family for a Bigger Piece of Pie
Imagine someone asking you to research their great grandfather but only allowing you to use 6.25% of the available genealogical records for the research. That seems ridiculous!  But that is the limitation most people unknowingly place on themselves with DNA research. In this session you will learn--
  • How to calculate DNA coverage (the percentage of an ancestor’s DNA you are using for research)
  • Collaborating with relatives who have already tested
  • Who to test next for the best coverage
  • Descendancy research considerations and strategies 
  • Tips for recruiting testers
To get on the SGS DNA Interest Group email list, contact SGSDNASIG@gmail.com
