AncestryDNA is the most popular DNA testing company and over 20 million people have purchased their test kits or received them as gifts. In this presentation Ed McGuire will explain all of the major features provided to customers - from the "DNA Matches List" to "ThuLines" and, most importantly, "Shared Matches." Ed will discuss how best to contact genetic cousins, how to identify networks of DNA matches who are likely to all share a piece of DNA with you, and how to stay organized as you explore this new genetic landscape. Along the way he will clarify the limitations of each tool and demonstrate some advanced techniques that just might allow you breach a brick wall or two. Classes at the Vermont Genealogy Library this fall will be on-line presentations using Zoom. They take place on Saturday mornings from 10:30 to noon, including Q & A. The class fee is $10.00. To register go to our website
