In preparation, please register at GEDMatch.com and upload your ‘Raw DNA files’ to the site. They have detailed instructions for uploading from most companies once you login and click the upload link. If you have problems, come to class anyway and we’ll brainstorm solutions. We’ll also take a look at how DNAGEDcom.com can help you.
