“This is a great podcast for both beginning and experienced genealogists. Beginners can learn the how to do genealogy the right way from the start. I wish this process was around when I started genealogy – I would have saved a lot of time and effort! Experience genealogists will learn something new from the discussion of the various tools and tech that Nicole and Diana use. The other thing I love about this podcast is the quality of the audio. The discussion of the topics is very clear and easy to listen to in the car, and there is no annoying bumper music or other useless content. Highly recommended!” – Bill

Research Like a Pro with DNA Study Group
This is the pilot session of Research Like a Pro with DNA. We typically offer the traditional Research Like a Pro Study Group twice a year. RLP with DNA is taking the place of the fall session of the Research Like a Pro Study Group. We are excited to offer this new study group which focuses on incorporating DNA evidence into our genealogy research.
The Research Like a Pro with DNA Study Group will focus on using autosomal DNA in your genealogical research. One of the prerequisites for the study group is to have access to your autosomal DNA test results. (See the prerequisite section below). You may also wish to include evidence from Y-DNA and Mitochondrial DNA tests in your research project, but these tests are not required for the study group.
The two sessions of the study group run weekly on Tuesdays at 1pm and 7pm MT. The study group will last for 10 weeks, beginning September 10. Each session will be 90 minutes long. Registration opens August 1. Each session will be capped at 15 people per session.
Registration begins August 1st. The study group begins September 10. Click here for more information and to register: Research Like a Pro with DNA Study Group.
