If one of your genealogy goals is to really “up your DNA genealogy game” and make a solid commitment to using DNA and connect with other testers then the Getting Started with DNA and Genealogy Boot Camp is for you!  The first webinar provides an introduction to DNA testing.  The second webinar focuses on using autosomal DNA for genealogical research.
 
Join DNA expert Mary Eberle* of DNA Hunters for over 3 hours of webinars PLUS some amazing handouts!

X-DNA for Genealogical Research
X-DNA can be mysterious since no company sells a stand-alone X-DNA test.  Instead, it’s included with autosomal DNA tests.  Another reason that it can be mysterious is because of its unique inheritance pattern.  With the X-DNA for Genealogical Research Boot Camp you'll learn how and when X-DNA can help your genealogical research.
 
Join DNA expert Mary Eberle of DNA Hunters for over 3 hours of webinars PLUS some amazing handouts!
  • X-DNA for Genealogical Research: What is X-DNA and when can it help answer research questions? Know where to find your X-DNA matches. Understand how men and women differently inherit X-DNA. This will unleash the power of X-DNA.
  • Case Studies with X-DNA: We’ll explore several examples where X-DNA provided crucial information to answer the research question.  Each example includes the steps needed to find the X-DNA shared with the match(es).  We’ll also discuss how the relevant family tree branches were identified, as well as the conclusions that were drawn.
