Free DNA Intro Webinars

Ever want to find out what DNA testing for genealogy can do for you?  Well, it’s your lucky day.

Sometimes last minute opportunities are the best!  Thanks to the APG, the Association of Professional Genealogists (, these two webinars are free for everyone.  But act quickly – because the first one is today (Tuesday), November 27th at 9 this evening.  Think of it as a spontaneous date.  Yes, I know more notice would have been nice, but our original session was canceled by the storm and until today, I didn’t realize it was free to nonmembers as well.  So you’re all invited!!!

Session 1:

DNA Explained: An Intro to DNA for Genealogists Tuesday, 27 November 2012 — 9:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time Presented by Roberta Estes

Join us to learn how DNA can be used for genealogical research. You’ll learn about how DNA testing works for both males and females, including an introduction to Y-DNA, mtDNA, and autosomal DNA. We’ll make science understandable, and by the end of this lecture, you’ll be putting together your own genealogical DNA test plan. Have a pedigree chart handy for quick reference.

    Ms. Estes:
    My name is Emmanuel Olona and I am an APG member. I was originally signed up for the two webinars listed above; however, a death in the family negated my attendance at the webinars. I have two questions: 1) were the two sessions recorded and if so, could I gain access to them? And 2) did you have handouts that I possibly could be sent copies?

    I consider myself still a “newbe” and I desperately need info on DNA. I know Dr. Bennett and his company FTDNA, but I still need more info (info I can understand).

    Please help,
    Emmanuel “Manny” Olona
