So, you’ve seen the adverts and you may have even taken a DNA test. But what does it all mean? What is ‘DNA’? What can it tell you? What are all those funny words they use? If DNA scares you, this is the course to learn more!

In this half-day course, Amelia Bennett goes back to basics. She guides you through what you need to know about taking a DNA test, how to understand the results, and how to use it to aid your family history research.

Amelia covers all three types of DNA tests but she focuses on the main test that looks at your closer relatives across all lines of your family tree. She uses examples to show you what the results will look like from the key testing companies and how to access the full range of information available from your test.

This course is suitable for many levels of family history experience but is aimed at newcomers to the use of DNA tests.
