Course Description

ONLINE: What is the best DNA "tool" for solving a genealogy mystery? It depends on the mystery and your understanding of how to use the tool, of course. There are several tools that the genealogy community finds especially helpful. The goal of this online course is to develop skills in using two of them: 1) mapping DNA chromosome segments and 2) using artificial intelligence in genealogy. Both tools can help with analyzing matches, identifying relationships and solving unknowns. Mapping chromosome segments also can help identify which ancestral line a person belongs in and how much DNA one has inherited from a specific ancestor. While AI can be used to translate documents from a variety of languages and to analyze family trees. Examples will be presented in class and exercises will be assigned to develop skills outside of class. Attendees will be encouraged to submit their personal genealogy cases/mysteries for class discussion. | Lecture + Q&A, Facilitated discussion.
