After we’ve found our ethnicity estimates and scanned for any surprise close relatives, many of us don’t really know what to do next with our DNA results. This list of people that we’ve never heard of could open the door to family photos and inspirational stories, but how do we figure it out? This class will provide a practical list of “to-dos” and leave you with a better understanding of how to use your DNA cousin matches to answer challenging genealogical questions. Presenter Ginger Ogilvie is a professional genealogist who loves to incorporate DNA into her research. Maximum 15. Facilitator: Ginger Ogilvie
