DNA Day at the Family History Library
We are pleased to announce that we will be holding six classes in honor of DNA Day.

9:00 - Why Genealogists Use DNA (30 min): Join us as we discuss the science behind DNA; how it recombines and is inherited and why a test might be helpful in answering some of your genealogy research questions.
9:45 - How Genealogists Use DNA (30 min): This class will discuss the types of DNA tests used for genealogy, the companies that provide them, and which test will best help you with your DNA research problem.
10:30 - Grouping DNA Matches (60 min): The process of clustering or grouping your DNA matches into genetic networks is an essential part of using DNA for genealogy research. This class will introduce the concept of clustering and walk you through the process of grouping your own DNA matches.
1:00 - Using DNA to Determine Relationships (60 min): Your DNA matches are probably your relatives. But a DNA test only suggests a relationship exists. This class will walk you through the process of determining the common ancestor between you and a DNA match or among a cluster of DNA matches.
2:15 - Using DNA to Find Unknown Parents: A Case Study (30 min): Come see how DNA and traditional genealogical research were used to identify an unknown biological parent.
3:00 - Using DNA to Solve a Brick Wall: A Case Study (30 min): Come see how DNA and traditional genealogical research were used to solve a brick wall research problem.
