Part Number: WXHPDNA_

Price: $9.95
Pop culture contains well-known family trees that genealogists can utilize to get younger generations interested in genealogy. These family trees also contain relationships that can be utilized to teach genealogists of all ages about genetic genealogy. For example, the family tree in Harry Potter – one of the most widely recognized pop culture family trees – can be used to educate genealogists about Y-DNA, mtDNA, and atDNA.

Part Number: WXNFTDNA_

Price: $9.95
Geoff is ready to close the case of the parentage of Nathan Brown. Traditional genealogy research has built a solid case, and now he wants to solidify the findings by adding DNA to the evidence. He recently located one of Nathan’s living, male, Brown-surnamed descendants who agreed to take the test - a YDNA test from FamilyTreeDNA.com. The results are in, and he is hoping that the DNA supports his theory. Is Jeremiah Brown really Nathan’s father or is it time to look up a different tree?

On hand to guide, interpret and explain what Geoff discovers will be DNA expert, webinar presenter, and yourDNAguide.com’s Diahan Southard. The result will be a live and unscripted session giving DNA neophyte researchers (like Geoff) a first-hand look at what to expect from a YDNA test.

Part Number: WXDNAPRFAR_

Price: $9.95
Do you have an adoption in your line, or are you adopted yourself? Do you have an ancestor who just refuses to be found? DNA testing can be a very powerful tool to help fill in the blanks in your family tree. But how helpful can it really be when you know absolutely nothing about the person you are trying to find? As it turns out, with the right techniques and a careful search, your DNA might be able to tell you more than you think.

Part Number: WXWHOOFGEN_

Price: $9.95
Genealogists are increasingly using autosomal DNA to find genetic cousins and examine specific genealogical questions. But knowing who to test is one of the biggest hurdles of autosomal DNA. For example, why are second cousins so great to test? Why should we test the oldest generation first? Together we’ll answer these questions and help you formulate an optimal DNA testing plan.

Part Number: WXFANGPDNA_

Price: $9.95
Can you really 'prove' a female line when, for four straight generations, absolutely no document identifies a parent or sibling? Does the challenge seem hopeless when courthouses are burned and an illegitimacy is rumored? This session will demonstrate how to use three critical tools: (1) the FAN Principle to build a case for identity and parentage in each generation; (2) the Genealogical Proof Standard to create proof arguments; and (3) DNA testing—mitochondrial and autosomal—to confirm or disprove the validity of those proof arguments.

This was presented live at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City and sponsored by the Board for Certification of Genealogists on October 7, 2016. 56 minutes. For more information about the Board for Certification of Genealogists and genealogy standards, visit www.bcgcertification.org.

Part Number: WXCIRTRI_

Price: $9.95
As we march forward into another year of genetic genealogy much is being discovered about the ways in which we can analyze our autosomal DNA data. There is a hot debate over two seemingly competing ideas: the DNA Circle, or the Triangulation method. The DNA Circle was pioneered by AncestryDNA and relies on small shared segments and complete family trees. The Triangulation method requires a chromosome browser and detailed calculations of shared amounts of DNA. We will cover questions like, Which is the best route to take? Do I need a chromosome browser? How can I use these methods in my own genealogy? Autosomal DNA is an ever changing field, this lecture will cover the latest methods of analysis and interpretation for the non-scientist genetic genealogist.

Part Number: WXCONFDNA_

Price: $9.95
With slave ancestral research, one is often faced with direct evidence vs. indirect evidence. Many forms of direct evidence that emphatically prove family relationships, birthplaces, and other happenings are often non-existent because slaves were merely considered “property”. Some researchers have been very fortunate to find rare pieces of direct evidence, in the form of old family letters, diaries, ledgers, Bibles, etc., to positively identify enslaved ancestors. Many researchers often rely on a preponderance of indirect evidence to confirm enslaved ancestors. Collier will present cases where DNA was the direct piece of evidence that identified or confirmed an enslaved ancestor.
