Have you had DNA tested?
Have you worked with your results?
Do you have a question about a specific match?

You will have a chance to ask your questions about your DNA research at our August session.

General questions about DNA research will be answered as well, with referrals to books, tutorials and videos where helpful.

If your question is about a specific match or Common Ancestor, it is helpful to bring the following with you:
-Access to your test results at all companies where you have tested.
Usernames
Passwords
-Access to any 3rd party tools you use:
Usernames
Passwords
-Specific Relationship questions
Well defined question
Steps you have taken to answer the question so far.
A drawing of relationship is helpful for context. Not fancy, a simple sketch is fine.

**This session is an experiment and new experience for all of us. While not every question will receive a final answer in the 90+ minutes allotted, we hope you will leave with new research plans and ideas to inspire your DNA quest. **
