Making the most of your autosomal DNA test


Michelle Leonard will be speaking on ‘Making the most of your autosomal DNA test’ at Family Tree Live


Introducing Michelle Leonard’s talk:

Michelle Leonard’s talk will give an overview of how autosomal DNA testing can help you solve mysteries in – and confirm the accuracy of – your family tree.


It will explain how autosomal DNA is inherited and how to use your autosomal DNA results to:

  • find new cousins
  • break down brick walls
  • and verify your paper research


Using personal success stories Michelle will talk you through the process from getting your autosomal DNA results to matching with cousins and offer practical guidance on the best steps to take to succeed. It will also cover the importance of X-chromosome matches and the use of third-party tools. 


This talk is for you if you’ve taken, or you are thinking of taking, an autosomal DNA test.


Suitable for many levels of family history experience - beginner to intermediate.
