ABCs of Ancestry DNA. A GSBC Program. (Online) Online
Join us before the program for a GSBC General Meeting beginning at 1:30pm ET, where a prize drawing will be held for GSBC members only. The presentation will begin at 2:00pm ET.
This presentation on genetic genealogy is aimed at the beginner level but will also be useful for those already using DNA for their family research. It will introduce basic concepts and terms like DNA testing, how to manipulate the AncestryDNA Matching website, creating a profile tree, most recent common ancestor (MRCA), shared DNA, segments, centimorgan, shared matches, haplogroups, short tandem repeat (STR), and singlie nucleotide polymorphism (SNP). Confused? Tune in to this presentation by a respected researcher and speaker.
