Managing your matches: a step-by-step approach to interpreting your DNA matches
No matter which DNA company you have tested with, you will have a whole list of DNA matches (usually well over one thousand) and for the most part you will not know how they are connected to you. This talk focuses on a step-by-step approach to managing your matches so that you can potentially identify the common ancestor you share with each match, which in turn will allow you to break through those brick walls in your family tree.


Marrying DNA and Irish family tree research
Researching in Irish records can be challenging and brick walls tend to impede our progress beyond the 1800-1830 timepoint. However, DNA testing can be a useful tool to complement Irish research. This talk will explore how to use your DNA results to augment your use of Irish records.
