About this webinar

This lecture will discuss how best to weed out false-positive DNA Matches that test-takers from endogamous groups face daily. After discussing how endogamous matches differ from typical DNA matches, chromosome mapping tools such as DNA painter will be demonstrated to help identify more likely matches. The strengths and weaknesses of every testing company will be considered, when specifically considering endogamy.

    Alec Ferretti is a gem! Loved his Strategies To Analyze Endogamous DNA! Great personality, energy, enthusiasm & sense of humor! Loved his line “I am a cousin to my ficus tree!” I’m a life-long gardener & genealogist so his comment really hit home!

    When I heard that this seminar was for medium to advanced researchers of DNA, I was thinking I had bitten off, more than I could chew by registering. However, I decided to stay and was pleasantly surprised at how much I actually got from the Webinar. Thank you so much a)for the warning, and b) for a great time.
