DNA Testing for Genealogy

Every genealogist has “tools” to help them discover their family ancestry.  It could be pieces of paper such as birth, death or marriage certificates or tapping into a relative’s box of mementoes and photographs.   Using genetics for genealogical purposes is also a tool but unlike the information frequently given on some certificates, it never lies.  Those interested will most likely be genealogists who are having difficulty with a “brick wall” in their study of their ‘Family Tree’. The first 2 week course will familiarise attendees with what DNA testing means.
