Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about how to incorporate DNA information into the timeline and analysis part of a research project. The timeline and analysis portion of the Research Like a Pro process is at the beginning. It helps you determine your starting point, because you look at all the sources you already have. After you test your DNA, you have an additional source that will help you in your family history research, that can be included in this phase. In the context of using DNA in genealogical research, you are a source that gives information – in the form of DNA – that can be used as evidence to either support or not support a family relationship. Today we talk with Robin Withlin, our genetic genealogist, about how you can analyze DNA test results in your timeline and analysis.
