  1. Going REALLY deep with Y-DNA Analysis: A Case Study with Dr. Laura Livingston. Now that you have your Y-DNA results and have figured out some family connections and ethnicity, how do you get to the deep understanding of the origins of your Y-DNA? Why do a BIG Y? What can you expect from the results of a BIG Y? Why should you spend the money for a BIG Y? What is the difference between Family Tree Y-DNA and Y-Full BIG Y results? What does it mean when you see family names that you have never heard of in the results? How do you research different clusters of families with different names?

Join us as we learn about Laura’s journey into the dizzying world of deep Y analysis and how she found out her family was a member of a unique cluster of families dating back thousands of years.
