WEDNESDAY May 1 from 7:00PM to 9:00PM
OWASA Community Center, 400 W. Jones Ferry Road, Carrboro, NC
 
Has it been a while since you last looked at your DNA results?   There have been a number of helpful tools introduced both recently and over the past few years to assist with your analysis.  Join us on Wednesday, May 1 at 7:00PM at the OWASA Community Center, 400 Jones Ferry Rd, Carrboro to hear D-OGS President David McCorkle review some of these and show how to use them.  After a quick introduction to autosomal DNA testing (e.g. ancestryDNA or Family Finder), we will show tools like DNA Painter, new options in ancestryDNA like ThruLines and color coding, and various browser extensions that help sort things out.   Feel free to bring information on your own favorite tools, especially if they have helped you solve problems.

All D-OGS meetings are free and open to the public.
