Diahan Southard is coming to Toronto

Here's an event I'd very likely be attending in Toronto, if I wasn't in England for RootsTech London.

Grow & Organize Your DNA Network is an all-day event from the Toronto Branch of OGS with speaker Diahan Southard.

The program is:

Session 1: 9:15 – 10:15 am:
DNA and Jack Sprat’s Wife (Who Couldn’t Eat Any Lean)
With the advent of autosomal DNA testing, women were catapulted into the limelight, no longer needing to rely so heavily on the men in their life to spit or swab. This lecture will focus on all things female from mtDNA, XDNA, and especially how to use the wives of your ancestors to help identify your autosomal DNA matches.

Session 2: 10:30 – 11:30 am:
Organizing Your DNA Results
Now that you have pages of matches and gobs of new information, how do you keep track of it all? We will spend time going over how to create and track correspondence, organization tools within each testing company, as well as strategies for tracking the genealogy information of your matches, including surnames, locations, and genetic relationships. You are bound to walk out of this lecture with a game plan that you can implement right away.

Session 3: 1:00 – 2:00 pm:
The YDNA Test Should Be Your Favorite
Come learn basic and intermediate principles of using YDNA verify and extend your pedigree chart, including how to make the most of your YDNA family project.

Session 4: 2:15 – 3:15 pm:
DNA Third Party Tools You Actually Need
When your list of needs for genetic genealogy analysis are not met at your DNA testing company, you may find yourself adrift in the world of Third-Party Tools. All of them are created by innovated, talented genetic genealogists trying to provide better solutions to the problem of analyzing and using your data.

Diahan Southard is an excellent speaker. There's a good chance the event will be a sell-out, so book early.
