Using Tools to Organize Your DNA Results (SWOHDNA)

Southwest Ohio DNA Interest Group (SWOHDNA)
The next meeting of the SWOHDNA is Tuesday, December 12th, at 7:00 PM. As usual, we will be meeting at the MidPointe Library in West Chester.

Speaker: Kelli Bergheimer, Chair of the Central Ohio DNA Interest Group, will be returning for a follow-up to her wonderful October presentation.

Topic: Using Tools to Organize DNA Results

Description:  Now that you have your results, how do you organize them to make the most of the information? Learn how to make your matches work for you. Use tools like Excel and OneNote to get yourself organized and make progress in your search. 

If you missed the October meeting, you may want to watch Kelli’s present on X-Inheritance Patterns. This is a complex topic and the source of confusion for many genetic genealogists. You can watch it at this link:
