During this introductory genetic genealogy lecture, Greg Liverman, PhD will walk us through the basics of understanding and using DNA in our family research.
 
DNA testing has become very popular to determine your ethnicity, facts about health risks and to find cousins. It has been used by adoptees and foundlings to find their biological parents and to solve cold cases. This lecture will provide information about what type of DNA test to take and what to do with the results once you get them.
