DNA Painter: Taking DNA Analysis to the Next Level by Visualizing, Mapping, and Recording Matching Chromosome Segments
05-14 @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm
Mapping matching chromosome segments is not only rewarding in helping to solve genealogical problems, it’s fun to see the pieces of your ancestors that have been passed down to you. This session will demonstrate how to map DNA segments you share with your matches, how to interpret the overlapping segments, and how to identify mysterious missing ancestors.
