Solving Family Mysteries with DNA
So let’s say that you’ve taken a DNA test and you’re still looking for a better way to find that elusive ancestor since no other documentation exists. Or maybe you were adopted or your parent was. How do you handle these “family mystery” situations which can become quite convoluted and complex? There’s a technique called Mirror Trees that I just learned about. It’s a great way to help in these kinds of mysteries.
I don’t know about you, but I also have matches that are close, but I have no idea who they are—or their name is there, but they don’t have a tree. That valuable match is sitting in my match list, but they are a total mystery to me. There has to be a better way than what I am doing and I could use some help!
Join DNA expert Mary Eberle of DNA Hunters for over 3 hours of recorded webinars PLUS some amazing handouts with Solving Family Mysteries with DNA Boot Camp!
- Mirror Trees: Mirror trees are trees built based on matches’ trees. They’re often used in unknown parentage cases. However, they’re also helpful for breaking down brick walls further back in your tree and determining how your matches are related to each other and to you. Learn how to build and use mirror trees.
- Best Tools for Researching Difficult DNA Matches: Have a really strong DNA match, but that the person doesn’t even have a name, let alone a tree? This webinar covers both free and subscription-based websites to help your detective work. It also covers the clues that can be used to figure out who matches are, where they’re from, and other important information. These new insights into your mystery can help you figure out your connection to them and place them in your family tree.
Here’s What You Get . . .
