 DNA is another type of data record that is useful in genealogy. Just like any record, it is important to understand the record in order to use it effectively. You donít have to be a scientist to use DNA for genealogy, but it is helpful to have a basic understanding to use it more effectively. The first part of the class will focus on the tests and testing companies available for DNA in genealogy research. The second half will provide explanation of DNA in terms that will be helpful to genealogists. Time for questions and answers will be available at the end. Program provided through the Larimer County Genealogical Society.
