DNA Boot Camp

Solving Family Mysteries with DNA Digital Download presented by Mary Eberle, JD. Two 90-minute webinars plus syllabus materials

Solving Family Mysteries with DNA Digital Download presented by Mary Eberle, JD. Two 90-minute webinars plus syllabus materials covering:

  • Mirror Trees: Mirror trees are trees built based on matches’ trees. They’re often used in unknown parentage cases. However, they’re also helpful for breaking down brick walls further back in your tree and determining how your matches are related to each other and to you. Learn how to build and use mirror trees.
  •  Best Tools for Researching Difficult DNA Matches: Have a really strong DNA match, but that the person doesn’t even have a name, let alone a tree? This webinar covers both free and subscription-based websites to help your detective work. It also covers the clues that can be used to figure out who matches are, where they’re from, and other important information. These new insights into your mystery can help you figure out your connection to them and place them in your family tree.
