Genealogists for hundreds of years have relied on records and pedigrees to trace family lines. More than one has run into a brick wall, discovered an error from a prior researcher, or simply had a gut feeling that something wasn’t adding up. Until recently there was no way to help confirm your paper trails or even those hunches you might have had. Now, with affordable DNA testing, many genealogists are discovering this new tool in their kit. Unfortunately, most are not sure what they should do with it. In this lecture you will learn the basics of genetics, how DNA can help you, and the tests available to you.
