This session is an introduction to the types of DNA we use today for genealogical research: Y-DNA, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), and autosomal DNA (atDNA). We will cover the way each type of DNA is inherited from our ancestors and have a brief discussion on how to analyze the test results once we get them.
If you don't get to attend the free webinar it is archived in the members only section of the website afterwards. Membership is only $25 per year and helps support the mission of the Friends of the National Archives-Southeast Region described on their "About" web page:
FNAS is a volunteer service organization dedicated to serving the research needs of the southeastern population of the United States as well as the preservation activities of the National Archives and Records Administration, Southeast Region, located in Morrow, near Atlanta. This region covers the eight states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Members of FNAS make a great team of amateur and professional genealogists and family historians working together to preserve regional, state, local and family history and pursue genealogical interests related to research, study, and preservation.It sounds like a worthwhile mission to me as I have ancestors from all of these states.
