About the webinar
There are many uses for autosomal DNA, but one of the most important uses for genealogists is the ability to solve eighteenth and nineteenth-century mysteries on your family tree. This webinar focuses on using autosomal DNA for this purpose.
Autosomal DNA is distinct from other types of DNA commonly used for genealogy, such as Y-DNA and mitochondrial DNA - it can be used to make some amazing breakthroughs.
This webinar will teach you all about autosomal DNA, the genetic inheritance of autosomal DNA, and how to use results from autosomal DNA genealogy testing to find more family members and solve long-lasting family history mysteries.
Blaine is one of the world's leading authorities on genetic genealogy - don't miss out on this opportunity to learn from a true expert.
