Understand the Basics of Using DNA with Genealogy
DNA testing for genealogy may seem daunting, but once you understand the basics, it is a great tool. Understanding your ethnicity results from those tests can be just as rewarding!
Two questions I get asked a lot are “why my results keep changing” and “why does my [insert heritage] line not show up”?
Once you understand the basics of using DNA with genealogy, these questions are easy to answer. You will be able to use that knowledge with your matches and future genealogical research.
