The Gedmatch Essentials Workshop covers the basic tools for analysing your DNA results using the third party website After doing your DNA test, you can transfer your results to Gedmatch where you will find other genetic cousins who have tested in a different company, who also match your DNA and with whom you share a common ancestor, as well as lot of tools to help you analyse your results. This workshop will use real case studies and practical examples to show you how the tools can help you with your family history research. This is an introductory workshop suitable for DNA newbies who have done a DNA test already and are ready to start learning more about what they can do with their results.
