Understanding Commercial DNA Test Results

Marsha Peterson-Maass author of Fundamentals of Genealogy® Author and Lecturer will be at the Peotone Public Library on Saturday, July 22nd at 10 am. 

She will help you with making sense of today’s three commercially available DNA tests (atDNA, Y-DNA and mtDNA) and the five leading commercial testing companies.  We’ll take a look at examples of the results they deliver to you online so you can understand what they mean. And we’ll take a quick look at which ancestral lines of descent each test applies to and the accredited method for preparing your Pedigree Charts to share.

(No DNA tests will be distributed or taken at this free lecture.)  Topics are covered from the Fundamentals of Genealogy®: Basics for Everyone and Fundamentals of Genealogy®: The Most Helpful Tools You’ve Never Used. . . textbooks are distributed before the lecture so participants can peruse them during the lecture and can optionally purchase to take home for $20/each (this price is a 20% discount).
