Better Together: Making Your Case with Documents and DNA
The Genealogical Proof Standard requires reasonably exhaustive research to solve ancestral identity problems. DNA evidence is often part of that research. Even the most compelling DNA evidence must be combined with traditional documentary research. This session shows different ways that genealogical problems have been solved by integrating DNA evidence with the paper trail.
Problem Solving with DNA: Case Studies
This presentation examines a few relationships that were either unknown or unproven from documentary research. Travel along as we embark on the journey of discovery using DNA and documentary resources highlighting lessons learned and pitfalls to be avoided.
All registered attendees will receive the handouts and the link to the Zoom meeting on Saturday morning before 9 AM.
