Using Autosomal DNA To Find An Unknown Ancestor  (Program)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Online - Zoom
Presented by Greg Liverman

Y-DNA and autosomal DNA evidence was used in addition to records research. Color clustering is used to determine the set of autosomal DNA matches that are from the great-grandfather's line. Match’s pedigrees are developed using records research to identify the great-great-grandparents and the likely great-grandfather.

What kind of stories could they tell?
