Title: Creating a Research Plan for DNA Testing
Speaker: Shannon Combs-Bennett
Have you tested your DNA? Not sure how it will help you in your genealogy research? You are not alone! During this presentation you will learn how to integrate your DNA results into a research plan for genealogy. Who do you test, which tests do you take, and why you would take them will be covered. You do not need to know anything about DNA testing to listen, but a basic understanding will help. Shannon writes and lectures on a variety of topics from genetics to methodology. She is a published author through in30minutes publishing as well as The In-Depth Genealogist. Currently, she is studying
Genealogical, Paleographic, and Heraldic studies from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.
