DNA Clustering Tools and Genetic Networks
This presentation will discuss the value of DNA clustering to help break through brick walls.
The ability to group your DNA matches into common ancestral lines can be the start of solving many genealogical questions.
We will examine clustering techniques from the manual Leeds Method to the many automated tools.
More importantly, we will discuss going beyond the colorful images to applying the Genetic Networks to your family research.
The goals of clustering are to divide DNA matches into groups related to each other and to find the common ancestor or couple.
Clustering can help organize and make sense of DNA matches and shared segments to focus your research efforts.

November Virtual Meeting
Because of the continuing closure of the Parkville Senior Center due to the covid-19 pandemic, the BCGS board has decided to hold our regularly scheduled meeting on November 22nd at 3:00pm virtually using Zoom.
Email Notification will be sent Monday, November 16.
Because we are using Zoom for our meeting, it is limited to 100 participants. There are a few spaces reserved for the speaker, the host and our officers so the first 95 members that respond to this email will be included in the live meeting.
For those that cannot make the meeting at that time or for those that don’t respond in the first 95 responses you can opt into a waiting list. Those on the waiting list will have the opportunity to view a recording of the live meeting hosted on our web site at your convenience. The folks on the waiting list will be sent a link to the recording a few days after the meeting.
Our speaker has graciously allowed us to record the live session.
Thank you for your patience as we work through these new procedures for our meetings.
