Tip! NOT TESTED YET? DON'T DELAY! If you have yet to take a DNA test we recommend that you do so by 31 July 2024 in order to give time for the DNA testing company to process your DNA test, and provide you with your DNA test results so that you may work with them while you are studying the DNA Bootcamp course.


Tip! ENDOGAMY? Please be aware that the DNA Bootcamp does not specifically cover endogamy. If you have endogamy in your family tree then autosomal test results are more complex to work with and techniques need to be altered. Customers with endogamy in their families have taken the DNA Bootcamp in the past, however, and still found it to be a useful experience.

Dedicated Facebook group opens 25 September; group will be archived 27th November.

Please note: clocks change on 27 October in UK from GMT+1 to GMT 

What Michelle’s students have to say…

Linda (writing about Michelle's DNA Bootcamp):

"I started my DNA Genealogy journey feeling somewhat baffled and overwhelmed  having taken a DNA test.
The DNA Bootcamp course very clearly set out how to work through, and make some sense of all my DNA matches in a clear, understandable and manageable way.  Even as a beginner, the tutor's clear instructions, help and support continued to be a great help beyond my expectations."

Karin (writing about Michelle's DNA Bootcamp):

"If like me you have done a DNA test and maybe worked out how you are related to a few of your DNA matches you may wonder what more you will learn at the Bootcamp. The answer is “lots”. Michelle takes you methodically through ways to maximise the information you can extract from your test results, and, as she says, “Set yourself up to succeed”."
