    I can’t help but learn something new every time I attend a webinar presented by Diahan Southard. I truly appreciate her enthusiasm and willingness to teach and to share her knowledge and experience garnered throughout her career as a Genetic Genealogist.

    Diahan is a great speaker, clear and so enthusiastic. I hoped I would get to understand the YDNA-MDNA a tad better, but unfortuntely I still need to read a lot more to get the basic grounding required. I have Diahan’s book ‘Your DNA Guide’ in pdf, but I think I need to get the hard copy for me to get the best from it.

    Diahan is simply the greatest at explaining the difficult subject of DNA. I love her graphics which helps me remember what she is teaching. She is so kind and patient. I remember her telling us years ago that to learn DNA, you just need to watch more and more webinars until it starts to “click.” She never makes anyone feel dumb for not picking up this complicated subject immediately. Traits of a fantastic teacher. I never want to miss one of her webinars.

    Diahan is a great speaker. I really enjoyed learning about the DNA. I have a better understanding of how to read the results now.
