Beginning DNA for Genealogists Getting back to the basics. In this presentation, we will look at all types of DNA that are currently being used for genealogical purposes. The inheritance pattern of each will be reviewed. Identify basic information that should be provided by all testing companies. The purpose of the “admixture” will be explained. Also explained will be why your admixture percentages change from time to time. Any time remaining will be open for questions. Judy Line has been doing genealogy off and on for thirty years. She has completed several formal education programs. She holds certificates from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies, Boston University and holds a business degree from Washington State University.
