FREE Webinar - Circles or Triangles? What Shape is Your DNA? presented by Diahan Southard - Wednesday, June 29th, 1:00 pm Central - “As we march forward into another year of genetic genealogy much is being discovered about the ways in which we can analyze our autosomal DNA data. There is a hot debate over two seemingly competing ideas: the DNA Circle, or the Triangulation method. The DNA Circle was pioneered by AncestryDNA and relies on small shared segments and complete family trees. The Triangulation method requires a chromosome browser and detailed calculations of shared amounts of DNA. We will cover questions like, Which is the best route to take? Do I need a chromosome browser? How can I use these methods in my own genealogy? Autosomal DNA is an ever changing field, this lecture will cover the latest methods of analysis and interpretation for the non-scientist genetic genealogist.” Click here to register - via Legacy Family Tree Webinars

  • FREE WEBINAR Weaving DNA Test Results into a Proof Argument presented by Karen Stanbary, CG – Tuesday, February 21st, 7:00pm Central – “This lecture illustrates how to integrate each element of the Genealogical Proof Standard in a proof argument that relies heavily on autosomal DNA test results to answer a relationship research question. The examples are drawn from “Rafael Arriaga, A Mexican Father in Michigan: Autosomal DNA Helps Identify Paternity.” National Genealogical Society Quarterly (June 2016).” Click here to register – via Legacy Family Tree Webinars and Board for Certification of Genealogists
