Course Spotlight: Proving Your Pedigree with DNA

Are you looking for hands-on practice with DNA? A way to apply what you have learned so far about genetic genealogy in your personal research? How about taking one of your ancestral lines, applying DNA analysis skills, and proving that line back to your second great-grandparents, with the experts guiding you along the way?

Karen Stanbary's new "Proving Your Pedigree with DNA" fills the gap between our getting started with genetic genealogy course and being ready for more advanced challenges. 

Documentation and DNA.  This new intermediate-level course provides hands-on practice with DNA analysis and application.  Part of the DNA Dreamers Series, it naturally integrates documentary evidence with genetic genealogy to achieve proof. Students will practice on a pre-selected ancestral line of their choice.

Blending Instruction with Hands-on Experience. The schedule for this particular course is extensive. All-day classes will be held on Fridays for five weeks. But the extra class time is necessary. Several hours of the class each day are dedicated to independent practice time. Faculty will be nearby to answer questions and give guidance as needed. This course will truly be a blend of quality instruction and practical application.

One-on-One Consultations. During the independent practice time, faculty and other experts will be available for private consultation and questions. 15 to 30-minute consultation session will be available each week to allow for personal guidance on your own research and projects.
