Now that you have taken a DNA test, you can either be passive by waiting for others to match you and hope that they have more information on your lineage than you, or you can be pro-active by engaging family and strangers in testing. Learn how additional testers can augment your lineage, regardless of what test you took. Learn how to approach possible testers, alleviating their concerns and convincing them to test. 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.
