Join us for the Family Tree DNA bootcamp!


09 July 2021
Looking for a new challenge to get your teeth into after the summer holidays? Family Tree’s DNA bootcamp returns in September and booking is now open. Read on to find out what previous participants had to say…

Family Tree's DNA bootcamp is an eight-week course, starting on 29 September and enrolling now, that shows you exactly how to use DNA to enhance your family history research.

Led by DNA expert Michelle Leonard, you will have the opportunity to gain a solid understanding of your DNA test results, DNA match lists and of how to use the tools provided by DNA testing companies.

The 8-week DNA Bootcamp will comprise weekly learning sessions (4 webinars and 4 Zoom follow-up meetings). All learning sessions will take place live online on Zoom.

Each week will provide you with new knowledge and step-by-step advice for you to put into practice yourself.

  • I just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed this course. As a retired teacher and someone who has worked as a teacher trainer, I can certainly confirm that Michelle is a very talented tutor. Jill
  • Thank you for the very informative sessions. I have certainly learnt so much from doing the Bootcamp. Although I couldn’t attend the Zoom sessions I found the recorded sessions were available without any fuss. Patricia
  • This course has really helped me understand a bit more about genetic genealogy and it’s taken my research in new directions. I’ve got a few ancient brick walls now tantalisingly close to being broken as well as breaking a brick wall in my partner’s tree. I’m so pleased and it’s been a thoroughly enjoyable course too. Claire
  • It was such a delight to work with Michelle and the DNA Bootcamp students. Each week Michelle put us through our paces, setting us tasks and challenges to go away and employ in our own DNA research, and she was excellent at making us feel that no question was too stupid (which is a great relief when it comes to DNA). It was really exciting hearing of people’s discoveries as the weeks went by, and surprisingly emotional too at times – really at the heart of family history. I loved every minute of it. Helen Tovey, Editor, Family Tree
