New Video on DNA Painter

At the February meeting of the Southwest Ohio DNA Interest Group, we discussed the chromosome mapping program developed by Jonny Perl, a family history enthusiast and web designer from the UK. His software won the Roots Tech DNA Innovation Award in 2018. The presentation was recorded and is available on both vimeo and YouTube.

DNA Painter is a website that you can use to visualize and make notes on your DNA ancestors. The goal is to be able to assign specific DNA segments to the individual or couple from whom you inherited it. The software is available at

Here is a sample of the chromosome mapping I've been able to complete on my family so far.

Happy painting.
