Your DNA Explained

These lessons are taught through a mixture of live and recorded video presentations by Roberta Estes and others. You'll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions over the course of those four days. Plus, you’ll get to try out the techniques and apply what you’ve learned to your own research. Finally, you’ll be able to download all the materials so you can watch and refer back to them anytime you want.

You’ll love the Applied DNA Workshop if:

  • You want a workshop that is focused on applying DNA research to your paper trail
  • You want to learn about more advanced DNA testing strategies and analysis tools

In this workshop, you’ll learn:

  • how to use phasing and triangulation in your research
  • real DNA analysis techniques to break down brick walls
  • how to use your DNA results in conjunction with an online family tree
  • how to work with matches that don’t have an online family tree
  • why you may not share the same matches with your mother
  • how to resolve conflicts between your paper and your DNA results

Meet Your Instructor

Roberta Estes founded DNAeXplain in 2004, after Roberta’s own “colorful” family history allowed her to participate in every aspect of DNA testing for genealogy, revealing unexpected surprises. Her genealogy specialty is DNA and southern Colonial records, focused primarily in Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina. Minority records, which reflect her own mixed heritage, are of particular interest, specifically Native Americans, African Americans, and other indentured individuals.

Roberta will be presenting a live keynote presentation on Saturday at 4:30 ET, so sign up in advance to hear her talk about “What’s New and News,” which will focus on DNA in the news and new tools as well. Roberta will highlight her favorite overall DNA tool, along with the best tool at each vendor. The link to sign up will be in the course materials.

Can't make the live presentation? Not to worry; we'll post a recording of it soon after it ends so you can go back to watch it later.

Roberta will also be presenting on other topics, and she'll be around the discussion boards to answer your questions.
