event held at 9.00 am AEST on Zoom
Expanding your Family Tree with DNA
Using Charting Companion & Family Tree Maker
Direct from Nova Scotia, Canada:
President, Progeny Genealogy
The DNA Matrix helps you by showing
an overview of DNA matches in a clear, simple chart.
Charting Companion can also "validate" your tree, by comparing actual DNA test results against the number expected from the relationships.
The percentage ranges for each type of relationship are based on
Leah La Perle Larkin's excellent blog "The DNA Geek".
If you are into DNA and struggle to make sense of this, then don't miss this event.
