    That was a very interesting session, thank you both, Diahan and Geoff. I have used filters etc for ages but I liked how you used filters within filters. Fingers crossed it helps me find my maternal grandfather’s father. I know his name through RCE record on Scotlandspeople, found two families same name, both ‘father’s’ went to USA at a similar timeframe. Have created both trees, now trying to find out which one via DNA. Thanks again.

    I had wanted to watch this program when it was first presented and life got in the way. I have now watched the recording. This was a great program. I did my mT DNA back when that was the only option for women. I did upgrade to the full sequence last year. The problem was that I never really know how to use it. Thank you so very much for the techniques that you shared. Because of this, I believe that I have found a second cousin. Now, on to more reseach to prove what I found. Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

    This webinar was SOOO great! Thank you both and Diahan it kind of took away the mental block I have about trying to understand DNA research. It was so amazing for Geoff to actually find and prove his 4th great grandmother! Wow!! Wow !!! I can only hope that I will find and prove my 2 x great grandfather/grandmother in time. Thank you again.

    OMG! This presentation was informative, instructive and inspiring. I could feel Geoff’s sense of being overwhelmed and grateful. I am happy to learn HOW, if all the stars align, you can get your family back using mtDNA. Thank you both!
