Sunday May 22, 2016
Save the date for our next meeting!
Please join us on Sunday, May 22, 2016, at 1:30 p.m. at the Hadassah meeting room, 3723 Old Court Rd (Dumbarton Offices entrance), Pikesville, for our next program, "Steps to Success with atDNA and Triangulation" by Jim Bartlett.

We’ll cover the proven steps that will get you started with atDNA, and on the path to determining Common Ancestors with your Matches. Experienced “how-to” guidance on: Robust Trees; Patriarch List; Standard email/message; Communicating with Matches and sharing; finding and “proving” Common Ancestors; Tracking info. Learn the principles of triangulation, and how to do it with FTDNA and 23andMe results and at GEDmatch. No genealogy or biology required – the perfect tool for everyone, and particularly adoptees and anyone with brick walls.

Jim Bartlett has been an active genealogist since 1974. He has been the Administrator of the BARTLETT-DNA Project (over 400 participants) since 2002 and has established 23 different lines using matching Y-DNA. He has been using autosomal DNA tests from all three main vendors since 2010 and currently has over 5,000 matching cousins who descend from most of his ancestry. He has determined Common Ancestors for over 2/3 of his DNA. He is an avid fan of these powerful, new DNA tools that will expand your genealogy, and enjoys teaching them to other genealogists. The DNA test is easy to take, fairly simple to use, and relatively inexpensive. No biology required!
