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

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.
