DNA testing has become an increasingly important tool in the family historian's toolkit. Autosomal DNA testing has become very popular and with the addition of new individuals to the major companies' databases every day, a major resource for solving tough genealogical research problems. In this presentation, attendees will learn: - the basics of DNA - what autosomal DNA results can (and cannot) tell you - important considerations about who to test (i.e., creating a test plan) - what tools exist to use in interpreting your results, and - about the reliability of ethnicity results. Examples will be given showing results from all three major testing companies (Family Tree DNA, AncestryDNA and 23andMe), as well as screenshots from third-party tools. This is a great class for those who know little about autosomal testing, as well as those who have been tested and aren't really sure what to do with their results.
