Using DNA Results With Family History Research
Shannon Combs-Bennett, QG


Alright, you have tested with a DNA company to learn more about your ancestry…now what?

Creating and using research plans for genealogy is an excellent habit to have, but you should also do this for DNA testing.

In this presentation learn how to combine traditional genealogy research with your DNA results for greater success with your research.

While a basic understanding of DNA testing is not needed for this presentation, it is helpful as only a brief explanation of the tests will be covered.

By the end of the talk you will know which test to take for a genealogical question, how to write and follow a research plan which includes DNA testing, and pit falls to watch out for.
