GEDMatch Basics

If you've taken an autosomal DNA test with AncestryDNA, 23andMe or Family Tree DNA (Family Finder) and heard about the GEDMatch utility allowing comparing results loaded to the site from any of these companies companies, but hesitated to try it, take a look at this YouTube video by Angie Bush. It's also embedded below. Recorded earlier this month it explains in relatively simple terms how to get the results from your autosomal test into GEDMatch and the basic analysis tools useful for genealogy. Recommended.
A follow on video is promised that will further explain these, and delve into other analysis features.

Thank you for posting this. It was helped me understand better. I've just written off for DNA test kits and I'm reading up on interpretation and services. I also wanted to tell you that I’ve included your post in my NoteWorthy Reads post for this week: http://jahcmft.blogspot.com/2015/04/noteworthy-reads-11.html
