DNA: A beginner's guide for family historians

Saturday 14th September 2019 - Canterbury

Venue
IHGS
Northgate
Canterbury
CT1 1BA

No matter which way we look DNA testing is mentioned more and more within the field of genealogy and DNA data can be a powerful addition to our research tool box. However, there are a variety of tests available from a number of testing companies and it can quickly become overwhelming trying to work out whether to test and which test to take.

This day course is run by Dr Karen Cummings, one of our Tutors, who is a professional genealogist with a background in the pharmaceutical industry.

During the day Karen will guide you through the minefield of DNA tests available, looking at what to consider before you test, which test is most suitable when, suitable candidates for each type of testing and what you can do with your results.

Subjects will include Y-DNA (paternal testing), mitochondria DNA or mtDNA (maternal testing), ethnicity data (those maps of "where you come from"), in addition to what is now the most popular type of DNA testing, autosomal DNA tests, such as those available from Ancestry. The day will include hands on sessions, giving you opportunities to become familiar with the data.

The course is equally suitable for those considering taking the first step and those who have already taken a test and want to know what to do with the results.

£55 or £50 AGRA members or £49 IHGS students

Similarly, one of the requirements of the Diploma in Genealogy is to conduct research and to produce a client report, describing the results of your research.
