Discovering Cousins Using DNA - Exploring Your Autosomal DNA Matches
This talk will show you how to explore your matches and use the tools available at the major DNA testing companies: AncestryDNA, FamilyTreeDNA, MyHeritage and 23andMe. It will focus on practical ways to discover how you are related to your Autosomal DNA Cousins. Case studies using matches at each testing company will illustrate methods you can use to connect with new cousins who can help you grow your family tree. This talk assumes you are considering testing or have tested at one of the three DNA testing companies.
