You did a DNA test and have a match list and some predicted relationships. How did the company do that, what does it mean, and what do you do next?
DNA testing for personal genealogy research is becoming more commonplace. The autosomal DNA test is the one that most people are using. This test shows connections - back five generations or more - to cousins, aunts, uncles, etc... Genealogist Nora Galvin will present this advanced lecture, which explains what the results mean, shows how we get "segments" and what to do with them.
A former biology teacher and laboratory scientist, Nora Galvin started a full-time genealogy business in 2005, specializing in Connecticut and Irish research and genetic genealogy.
