Post Seminar Resolutions Anyone?

The Ancestor Roundup Genealogical Seminar was held last Saturday. In my mind, it was a great success. I always get excited and start to work really hard on all the ideas I get from the various speakers. It is like New Year’s Resolutions all over. Hopefully these new goals will stick.

This year’s emphasis was on using DNA in your genealogy research. I was in heaven, I wasn’t able to attend all the sessions I wanted to. But for sure I did not leave early!

I can share a couple of things I learned that might be of interest: Katherine Borges, the Director of ISOGG, has a favorite DNA tool – chromosome mapping using the DNA Painter site. Barbara Rae-Venter, founder of our DNA Interest Group, has a favorite DNA tool – clustering using the DNAgedcom site.

My first efforts today has been updating the web links we have here in this web site. I needed to edit and update the site lists with the new things I learned about Saturday! You can Click Here to go to the updated Genetic Genealogy links found here. If you see anything that needs fixing or if there are obvious omissions, please let me know.

In my own poking around, I found a great explanation about Clustering by Kitty Cooper on her blog. Click Here to go to her post about DNA Clustering.
