This session will focus primarily on Ancestry as your research tool, covering:
- Privacy settings;
- Providing a tree for matches;
- Ethnicity estimates (not absolutes);
- Review/work with closest results;
- Shared matches;
- Go further with gedmatch.
Important: Please bring a computer or tablet for some hands-on activities. A computer/tablet is not necessary for attendance, but having it along will enhance the experience. It is suggested that attendees download their raw DNA data from Ancestry in advance. In addition, please export a basic tree (direct-line ancestors back at least six generations: 126 parents and grandparents). Save this as a new tree in your software and also export as a gedcom.
Sessions are free, and open to the public, but please register in advance at the Erie Public Library website, http://www.erielibrary.org/events.
