Dana Leeds

Dana Leeds started researching her family tree in 1998. She bought her first DNA kit in 2016 and solved her first unknown parentage case in early 2018. While working on another case that year, she created the innovative genetic genealogy tool known as the Leeds Method. This method quickly sorts DNA matches into clusters allowing the user to see which matches belong together. Dana quickly became a nationally known genetic genealogy speaker, and she enjoys helping others to easily understand and work with their DNA results.

Using Clusters to Quickly Identify DNA Matches Relevant to Your Research Question
Wed, October 5 2022: 18:00 UTC
Clusters can be created using Shared Matches, the Leeds Method, and automated tools such as AutoCluster or the Collins’ Leeds Method. Each cluster represents a group of people who are tied together because of close family relationships based on DNA. Finding an appropriate cluster can help you solve your research question even in cases of misattributed parentage or changed names. This presentation will show you how to work with clusters to answer your research questions.
