Join Dr. Hubbard for a crash course on Understanding DNA in Family Histories; from 23 and Me to, what do you need to know? DNA testing has become part of genealogy, but what does it really mean? What are the different tests? Why do they tell us different things? Where did we get the different components of our genetic heritage? Who should be tested? How can DNA testing be used to attack genealogical problems? In short, Dr. Hubbard will provide insight and answers to the many questions surrounding the use of DNA in researching family histories.

Daniel Hubbard is a full-time professional researcher who has been researching almost as long as he can remember. Inspired by family stories and a pair of genealogist aunts, he began to seriously conduct family history research at about eleven years of age.
