GSV’s very popular Zoom sessions ‘DNA and Family History’ are starting again in March 2023.
The sessions will help you use DNA with your family history. Whether you are looking to break down a brick wall, extend your family tree, confirm your research, or find new cousins, DNA can help with your family history.
The sessions start with the basics and progress through to more intermediate topics. They are relevant to which ever testing company you have used but concentrate on Ancestry and My Heritage as the most common.
The early sessions assume people are just starting to use DNA for family history. You can either follow the whole series of sessions or join for topics of interest. Look at the GSV Events Calendar for the details of each session.
The online sessions are presented by Alan Rhodes and involve a presentation on Zoom, followed by time for questions and discussion. Detailed handouts are provided for each session which explain the main ideas and provide suggestions for further reading and follow up activities. GSV also offers a DNA email where you can ask questions about the session or get advice on using your DNA test.
If you have not yet done a DNA test and wondering whether you should, why not look at the GSV’s three webcasts, listed in the GSV catalogue. They cover the basics of:
- Should I do a DNA test?
- DNA Ethnicity results
- DNA and family history
It is recommended that you do a DNA test and preferably have your results to get best value from the sessions. The sessions start in late March so there is still time to organise a test and have the results for the early sessions. There is a $5 registration fee for each session.
