If you've seen TV shows such as "Who Do You Think You Are", you might have wondered about this whole genealogy thing and how you find your own ancestors. One way is to get famous and wait for someone to invite you onto that show. A more practical way is to start finding the information yourself. This class will cover the basics of DNA testing, research, tree building, 3rd party tools, and working your DNA matches to link them to your tree. Suitable for beginners and old hands looking to up their game with DNA. Included with registration is a one-hour private consultation TBA.

Materials required: A DNA test with AncestryDNA is helpful, but not required.

Further information: Youth and Teens must be accompanied by an adult.
