DNA in genealogy

Postby richardstephens » Tue Aug 13, 2019 4:52 am

I understand there was an article about this in a recent magazine, but unfortunately I failed to obtain a copy. Can anyone either summarise the article, or otherwise tell me how one might go about using DNA testing?

You could subscribe to the free newsletter from Lost Cousins. Peter Calver has written a ‘masterclass’ about DNA testing. The link is here: ... asterclass

Hi Richard. Thanks for your post. We regularly cover DNA in the magazine, but you might be thinking about the six-page feature in our June issue, in which Debbie Kennett explains what to do with your autosomal matches. The digital edition is still available, or you can order a print copy via ... ack-issues We have also uploaded part of an earlier article by Debbie on choosing a DNA kit to our website: http://www.whodoyouthinkyouaremagazine. ... d-you-take
