About this webinar

Autosomal DNA, Y-DNA, X-DNA, and mtDNA testing and results all have their pros and cons for helping to solve a genealogy mystery. When used in tandem, the synergy of these various forms of DNA evidence aids in pinpointing (or ruling out) relationship scenarios and the source of shared DNA.

    Thank you. This was so informative and interesting. I’m a complete beginner when it comes to DNA and mostly my understanding of genealogy has come through working out the logic of it myself rather than learning from anyone else. Having hit various brick walls that historical records are not (so far) resolving I decided it’s time to understand better the uses of DNA… I had to listen to parts of your talk at least twice to grasp it all fully but I am now fascinated and hooked on the subject. I’m looking forward to putting these strategies into practice.

    Paul took us through a complex subject in an organized and understandable fashion. This program is one I’ll watch over again as I utilize the concepts he demonstrated so effectively.

    Paul gives fully informative and well researched webinars. I love that he goes past beginner level to more advanced concepts to help extend me with my knowledge and that can be challenging but is well worth it. Having a subscription means I can go and watch it multiple times to work through the concepts I need to review.

    A very complex subject that Paul has tried to simplify. I think I have the basics now. Thanks

    The webinar started out with a useful reminder for me of the different types of DNA test and how they are are used- then it got more complicated. This is one of those webinars that needs to be watched again to get most use from it.
