Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is an interview with one of our Research Like a Pro with DNA eCourse members, Allison Kotter. In this series, Allison shares her experience studying each lesson in the course and how she has applied the lessons to her own family. This first episode covers the assignments for lessons 1 and 2. We discuss pedigree analysis, assessing close matches, clustering with the Leeds Method, beginning a correspondence log, and organizing matches in a diagram.

I listened to this episode this morning and enjoyed learning more about the process of using DNA in genealogical research. It’s always helpful for me to hear examples of how someone uses a particular system and what their thought process was as they moved forward.
I really enjoyed this podcast. I am doing my first RLP with DNA project, so this was very timely for me. I am working through the book chapter by chapter, but listening to someone else discuss it was very helpful. I can’t wait to hear the next episodes!
I always love listening to your podcasts and the ones on genetic genealogy are my favorite. It’s my new addiction!
Thanks for featuring Allison and giving us a case study on how to use DNA with RLP. Look forward to future episodes.
