DNA and Genealogy 

DNA is playing a more and more ubiquitous role in genealogical research. But Genetic Genealogy can have a steep learning curve. How does a Y-DNA test compare/contrast with a mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) test or an autosomal DNA test? Is there an advantage to using one company over the other? I’ve got my results, now what? Come to the Covington Branch of the Kenton County Library and get your questions answered.

The following topics will be discussed:

  1. What is DNA? How is it used in genealogy? What kind of information will I receive? How reliable are ethnicity results?
  2. What companies process DNA for genealogy? Is there an advantage to selecting one company over another?
  3. I've got my results. What can I do with them?
Kathy Reed of the Hamilton County Genealogical Society will be the speaker. She attended a week-long institute on genetic genealogy earlier this summer and has spoken frequently on this topic. We hope to see you then.
