Tracing family history benefits from both paper and DNA research. Sue will showcase examples of various family history puzzles involving DNA testing, based on her work as an administrator of the Oxfordshire DNA Project and her own family history in Yorkshire, Scotland and somewhere in Europe 4000 years ago. She will also offer a light-hearted look at what people ask about DNA testing and why it is worth getting involved.
