About this webinar

The genealogical proof standard requires reasonably exhaustive research in solving ancestral-identity problems. DNA evidence is now often part of that research. Even the best DNA evidence must be combined with some traditional research. This webinar will show different ways that genealogical problems have been solved by integrating DNA evidence with the paper trail.

    lots of information — obviously Patti is an expert, but she is able to explain most things in an understandable manner. She did a great job and I enjoyed being able to participate. thank you!!

    Loved the charts and was down to earth.

    Loved the explanation of how to incorporate DNA with Documentary research.

    Loved the various case studies used to demonstrate the use of documentation and DNA evidence.

    Ms. Hobbs has a wonderful speaking voice.

    New to the subject, but very understandable as an introduction

    OMG she was one of your VERY very best in terms of quality and timeliness of topic and making it soooo very understandable to students. Thank you and here’s ups you get her back again and again!

    Outstanding presentation. Love the examples Patti used.

    Patti does a masterful job of communicating her considerable experience. Who doesn’t appreciate such a skilled guide when traversing the murky new field of DNA analysis? Thoroughly enjoyed her presentation.

    Really enjoyed the case studies and how the DNA was worked into it.

    REally enjoyed the speaker

    Really good explanations of the way that DNA could be used in a proof argument.

    She gave such clear explanations on how to assimilate the DNA test results with our research documents. Really cleared up many questions I had. Great big thanks.

    She showed the importance of doing the documentary evidence, charting information and writing out the findings.

    So interesting! Thank you!

    So many tips to help me whittle my way through DNA matches and figuring out connections to match to documents I have. Thank you for a great presentation!

    Speaker was very knowledgeable and experienced.

    Terrific presentation! Thanks you BCG and Geoff. 🙂

    Thank you for the detailed and very clear syllabus.

    That was absolutely fascinating! I loved the stories! It made me so excited to start digging for some court records. 🙂 Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’m 30 years old with two little ones, so it gets hard to do detective work, but tonight’s presentation was absolutely inspirational!

    This was one of the best webinars ever! combining DNA and documentary discussion – very relevant and contemporary.

    This was very helpful. I can now see how to state my case in a series of proof statements, using the documentation and DNA evidence.

    Very good case studies.

    Very helpful! Learned a lot, can’t wait to try some of what she showed.

    Very thorough!!

    Well planned and presenter was super knowledgeable.

    Wonderful, wonderful. A complicated subject matter so people need all the DNA webinars available. Patti is very smart and is easy to understand.

    Would enjoy a follow up on DNA Painter, Visual Phasing, and how she puts a case study together and tracks it with Evernote.

    Would like to see webinar on how to track all your DNA results.


    Wow, my head is full. So many times I wanted to hit pause or rewind. I will have to rewatch this one more than once. Great presentation.
