Unlocking the Power of DNA Painter  (Workshop)

Unlocking the Power of DNA Painter
A Members Only offering
Presented by Laura Schuck
Join me for a class that will help you understand the power of chromosome mapping with DNA Painter. The tools within DNA Painter can help you identify unknown matches as well as helping focus on which matches may be key to discovering new ancestors. The colorful visualization tools bring genetic genealogy to a new level.
In the class I will use practical examples to demonstrate how to use all the feature of the site including Ancestral Trees, Tools and WATO, and Chromosome Maps.
Class Requirements:
  1. That you have your DNA results, and they exist on, or are uploaded to, one or more of the following: FamilyTreeDNA, MyHeritage, 23andMe, or GEDmatch. does not give you segment data; so if you tested with them, you must upload your raw data to either FamilyTreeDNA, MyHeritage or GEDmatch.
  2. That you have created an account on *
  3. Please fo to, scroll down to "Help and Advice", and watch the video "An Introduction to DNA Painter" with Jonny Perl before the class (the video is approximately 50 minutes long.) This will give you some of the basics of chromosome inheritance and make you familiar with terms used on the site, as well as a demonstration of the basics of painting your segments.
*You can use all the tools and create 1 chromosome map (profile) for free. If you want to paint additional maps or use batch import functions, you will need the paid version. It costs $30 / 6 months or $55 / year.
