But it can be confusing, scientific, complicated and even costly to consider doing. But it is another resource tool to consider to use in your ancestral quest search for interesting connections.
Don G. a frequent attendee at our monthly genealogy programs shared a nice link with me that may be very helpful to learn the basics of DNA and genealogy. Better yet, the link gets you to a series of “video” lessons online that can remove the veil of confusion as to what DNA and genealogy are all about.
The web site is provided by GeneTree.com.
The link to the tutorial videos is at:
Check out the above videos and learn more about DNA and Genealogy and how you may want to jump in with both feet into this growing research tool.
The video length in minutes is not identified at the site. I wish that were present so you could gauge how much time you will spend in viewing the material. However, I did look through a couple of them and the viewing time seems to be about 2 to 3 minutes each for the 6 mini-videos. They are short enough to get a basic exposure to DNA and genealogy.
It is nice to be able to see how the technicalities of the science of DNA can be made to be more understandable through a series of short and informative teaching lessons. The videos are short, sweet and to the point so you will know more about DNA and genealogy than you did before!
Give the videos a try.
Thanks to Don G. for sharing this information with me.
