Family Tree are excited to present DNA Discoveries, an exciting programme of online events exploring and celebrating the use of DNA for family history, with registration now open.

DNA Discoveries is a brand new online event dedicated to genetic genealogy, as many of the world's top DNA experts come together for presentations, workshops, and a discussion panel.

Family Tree Publisher Matt Hill said:

'DNA has had a remarkable effect on family history in recent years, and the advances continue to take us in new, exciting directions. This combination of traditional research methods and state-of-the-art science means there's so much to learn, share, and celebrate, and that's why we've launched DNA Discoveries, an online event featuring some of the world's top experts in the field of genetics and genealogy.
