Resolving genealogical questions with DNA test results requires the use of multiple peoples’ shared DNA and well-researched family tree data. Usually analysis of results demands extensive communication, hard work and time. In this talk Ed McGuire will discuss a methodology called “DNA Networks” which seeks to identify shared relationships between your DNA and that of several matches who all appear to be related based on shared DNA. These networks can reduce the workload & complexity required and often can overcome the problem of missing family trees. They can more rapidly identify common shared ancestors than comparing matches individually. Ed will demonstrate how to organize results including the use of automated tools such as “DNAGedcom”, “Genetic Affairs” & “DNA Painter.” Classes at the Vermont Genealogy Library are $10 for members, $15 for non-members. Classes run from 10:30 to noon. The library is located on Hegeman Ave, Fort Ethan Allen, Colchester. Parking and entrance are across from the State Police.
