Learn Genetic Genealogy

Struggling to understand your DNA results? Is the book you purchased with the best of intentions just gathering dust? The educational material offered by the testing companies is pretty good but not for everyone. People have different learning styles.

If you're the type of person who learns best from a structured lesson environment consider the courses being offered by DNA Adoption. See the list at  http://moodle.dnagedcom.com/course/index.php

The one that caught my attention, for those who want to go in depth, is Working with Autosomal DNA Results. It's described as "designed to help people get started using autosomal DNA results to look for birth parents or to solve genealogy roadblocks. There is a lot of Excel basic instruction included. A forum is available for each lesson to ask questions and make suggestions. Cost is $35 US and the course has been updated to include recent changes at the three major autosomal DNA testing companies. It is a 6 week course with frequent start dates with teachers available for Q&A along the way."
