Introducing Jonny Perl’s talk:

Come and learn about DNA Painter – the tool to help you get more insights from your DNA test results, with DNA Painter creator Jonny Perl.


DNA Painter is a website that aims to make the best use of your matches for genealogical research.


Chromosome mapping involves taking the precise segments of DNA that you share with a match and inferring which ancestor was the source of this DNA. As well as being a fascinating puzzle, this process can help you identify new matches more efficiently.


This presentation will explain the site's chromosome mapping features in detail, and will also introduce the tools that can be used to help predict the relationship you have with your match based on the amount of DNA shared.


This talk is for you if you’ve taken a DNA test and now wish to broaden your genetic research horizons.


Suitable for many levels of DNA researcher.
