Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about Diana’s Dillard project. For the RLP with DNA study group, she is exploring the possibility that a cluster of DNA matches from her second cousin’s network graph are related through Cynthia Dillard’s parents. The MRCA of the cluster appears to be Elijah Dillard. In this assignment, Diana made a research plan. First, she created a summary of known facts about Elijah Dillard. Her goal for this phase was to find out his parents or origins to see if Cynthia would also fit into that family. She planned several steps in documentary research and then DNA methods. She decided to focus on Macon and Pike counties in Alabama, where Elijah lived in his earlier years.
