Connecting with unknown family, finding cousins with whom you can research, and discovering which ancestors provided your DNA are rewarding aspects of autosomal testing which can lead to genealogical success. This test can be helpful for adoptees. This presentation will show how autosomal DNA is inherited, including the X-chromosome, and help you discover how to find common ancestors you share with those you match. Learn about others' successes and start making your own! A handout is available. Emily’s book Genetic Genealogy: The Basics and Beyond may be purchased. Free draw: two winners selected at the presentation for the e-book version.
