DNA I: Introduction to Genetic Genealogy

The goal of the DNA I class is to introduce the topic of genetic genealogy to those who have not yet started or are just beginning the testing process. We will discuss the types of available tests and lay out a strategy for how best to test your DNA to locate possible relatives. We will discuss the introductory analysis steps for the test results that you receive..

Time commitment: The class will be presented in 2 one hour teleconferences on successive Sundays. There will be another 2-3 hours of homework during the week and 1-2 hours of reading. We will use that homework to discuss research goals and build a condensed family tree to optimize your testing strategy.

Prerequisites:: 1) Must be familiar with using computers; 2) Willing to participate via Zoom at the scheduled times.

We will be analyzing your family tree but will not be analyzing your DNA results in this class..

Tuition for this class is $50.

ZOOM Meets Aug 6, 13. Sundays at 1 PM EST/10 AM PST
