The DNA Painter website has a useful set of tools for all family historians interested in genetic genealogy. This is a two part online course, with Session 1 on 28 August and Session 2 on 11 September. The sessions will not be recorded, so you must attend live.
We’ll commence Session 1 with an overview of the site, including how to set up a free account. You’ll be introduced to the chromosome mapping tool and discover how your map can be used to explore unknown DNA matches. This leads us onto the ancestral trees tool which is useful for all family historians. Finally, we’ll look at the Shared cM tool and how to build a basic "What are the odds?” (WATO) tree. There’ll be time for questions between each topic. You’ll have a short activity to complete before Session 2.
In Session 2 there will be a review of the activity from Session 1 and we’ll spend much of the session looking at ways family historians can use the “What are the odds?” (WATO) tool in their DNA research. There'll be case studies to demonstrate WATO and time for questions.
