Making the most of autosomal DNA

DNA testing is now all the rage but what can you really learn from a DNA test? Do you have lots of matches and don’t know where to start? 

In this workshop we will look at how to interpret and work with your matches and how to get the most out of your results. To participate you should already have autosomal DNA results available, preferably from AncestryDNA, which will be the main focus of this workshop, but we will also be able to look at results from other companies. Participants are encouraged to bring along their laptops and iPads, share their results and ask questions.

Ticket price includes tea/coffee and biscuits. Places limited, pre-booking required.

Please note that free parking at Davidson House is no longer available for attendees of events at The Centre on Saturdays.
