Find Your Ancestors: DNA Workshop

The Find Your Ancestors series wrapped up a great 2022 season with two back-to-back presentations on DNA from Diahan Southard, Founder of Your DNA Guide. Diahan presented: “Five Tips to Make Sense of Your DNA Testing” and “Find Missing Ancestors Using DNA Testing: An Introduction for Genealogists.” During the sessions, she walked attendees through how to get the most out of your autosomal DNA testing, reviewing testing options, tools to understand your DNA results and matches, and how to use your DNA results and genealogy research to locate unknown ancestors. One attendee said this was “The best presentation on this topic I’ve heard. Lightbulbs finally went off!” Friends provided financial support for this series and an honorarium for this speaker.
