200,000 MATCHES! HELP!
Sunday, November 13 | 1:30–2:30 pm ET

Genetic testing can be a powerful tool for genealogical research. DNA results can generate clues that can help people confirm or deny relationships. But DNA results can also be confusing and frustrating. In this presentation, Gil Bardige will share proven methodologies to help you prioritize your top 50 matches so that you can have the highest probability of finding a common relative on a family tree, and provide you with actionable processes that you can really use in your genealogy research.

Sunday, November 13 | 3:00-4:00 pm p.m. ET

Do you have endogamy in your family tree? You are probably wondering what the best online tools are to use in your family history research. Gil Bardige will discuss strategies and challenges when using popular 3rd party tools in such cases. He will demonstrate how to use – or not use – different online tools, including Ethnicity, Shared Matches, Clusters, WATO (What are the Odds) and SCMP (shared centimorgan project). After this lecture, you will find yourself more productive and effective in applying your DNA matches to your genealogy.

These lectures are offered in partnership with the Jewish Genealogical Society of Cleveland.
