Selection of Genealogy Program and Services

May 14, 2022 - 09:00 - 10:00

The presentation will discuss one’s genealogy objectives and the benefits of building a family tree online, or on a personal computer (PC). Web sites and PC genealogy programs will be reviewed, both for standalone or synchronized use. Autosomal DNA testing is very useful to extend your family tree or confirm branches where limited source information is available. Testing companies will be compared and evaluated – not only on the number of matches they provide, but on the number of common ancestors that can be identified.
