Register for Webinar Wednesday: How Testing Multiple Relatives Can Turbocharge Your DNA Research by Michelle Leonard
Testing yourself is a great first step into DNA testing waters but how could testing other relatives help you? Testing multiple relatives can massively boost your success with DNA research and this webinar will talk you through the whole process. You will learn about DNA inheritance and why it's beneficial to test certain close relatives and cousins as well as which relatives you should aim to test first as not all relatives are as useful as others. Michelle will reveal her top DNA testing strategies, how to go about asking relatives to test and how to get the most out of multiple kits once the results arrive. She will use practical examples provided by the extensive number of family kits she manages to illustrate how these additional results give you more of your ancestors' DNA to work with, can help you narrow down all your matches, can be used to identify outliers and overlapping segments and generally aid you in taking your DNA research to the next level.
